It's St. Patrick's Day, so it's only appropriate that the Miami Dolphins have signed quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick to a deal that will pay him a lot of green.
ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that Fitzpatrick is signing a two-year deal for $11 million guaranteed, with incentives that could nearly double that money. With Ryan Tannehill traded away earlier in the week, Fitzpatrick is the clear QB1 in South Beach. Having previously started for the Rams, Bengals, Bills, Titans, Texans, Jets, and Buccaneers, Fitzpatrick will soon start for his third team in the AFC East alone. He turns 37 in November, so it's still entirely possible he will eventually take over for Tom Brady in New England and make it four-for-four.
Fitzpatrick is coming off the best year of his career, setting personal bests in DVOA (16.8%) and leading the NFL with 9.6 yards per attempts. We wrote about him quite a bit last season, looking at his journeyman history in Scramble for the Ball and his extreme boom-or-bust tendencies in Quick Reads.
