Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick is leaving the Miami Dolphins for the Washington Football Team.
Former Dolphins’ QB Ryan Fitzpatrick reached agreement with the Washington Football Team on a one-year deal worth $10 million that could grow to $12 million with incentives, per source. Fitzpatrick is expected to head to camp as the starter, with competition from Taylor Heinicke.

Fitzpatrick, 38, was reportedly unsure about his career in the NFL.
As a matter of fact, it was recently reported that he was considering retirement.
Of course, Fitzpatrick’s future with the Dolphins was uneasy due to the franchise’s drafting of rising star Tua Tagovailoa. The Dolphins selected the youngster with the No. 5 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
As a result, Fitzpatrick shifted into more of a mentor role. He lost his starting duty to Tagovailoa last year.
