And so the reported one-year, $3 million deal between the Bucs and the former Jets starter happened without Tampa Bay negotiating with Kaepernick as an alternative to Fitzpatrick, at $3 million or maybe even less.
The team announced they have signed Ryan Fitzpatrick to a contract Friday.
Fitzpatrick is coming off of two seasons with the New York Jets, where one was his career best and the other was disappointing.
Originally selected by the Rams in the seventh round of the 2005 NFL Draft out of Harvard, Fitzpatrick now owns a career completion percentage of 59.7 alongside 25,888 passing yards and 166 touchdowns against 133 interceptions. Looking at the Bucs depth chart at the quarterback position, signing Fitzpatrick fills a major need considering the players the team had sitting behind Jameis Winston.
It is also worth noting that Fitzpatrick's eventual arrival in Tampa Bay stemmed from the Buccaneers' decision to part ways with current Chicago Bears quarterback Mike Glennon. He was benched twice and finished with just 12 TD passes and 17 interceptions.
He started 11 games, throwing for 2,710 yards with 12 touchdowns and 17 interceptions last season.
Fitzpatrick became a free agent February 10 when his contract automatically voided. Fitzpatrick wanted to cash in on his big season, while the Jets wanted to see if it was a flash in the pan year.
His role in the Jets' 5-11 year - a season in which he was replaced by both Geno Smith and Bryce Petty - essentially rang the bell on his career as a viable starting passer, but the veteran can still be a valuable asset as a savvy backup.
