Ex-Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick signs free-agent deal with Tampa Bay Bucs 

Ryan Fitzpatrick has found his seventh NFL home.

The ex-Jets quarterback has agreed to a free-agent deal with the Buccaneers, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

Fitzpatrick, 34, the journeyman QB out of Harvard, will compete to be Jameis Winston’s backup in Tampa.

The Bucs did not have a proven NFL quarterback on the roster after Winston with Ryan Griffin (zero NFL snaps) and Sean Renfree (seven career passing attempts) on the QB depth chart after the former Heisman Trophy winner.

Fitzpatrick couldn’t recreate the “FitzMagic” last season after leading Gang Green to a 10-6 mark in 2015, his first in New York. Only a season-ending loss in Buffalo prevented the Jets from reaching the playoffs that season.

He threw for a team-record 31 touchdowns that season, but then after feuding with the Jets brass over his worth in the offseason, Fitzpatrick regressed in 2016.

The Jets parted ways with Fitzpatrick after he went 3-8 in 2016 with 17 interceptions.

The Bucs will be Fitzpatrick’s seventh NFL team. After starting his NFL career with the Rams, Fitz has also played for the Bengals, Bills, Titans and Texans.

He has a 46-69-1 career record in 116 starts.
