Fitzpatrick and the Jets are unlikely to reach agreement on a new contract before next week's NFL Draft, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Fitzpatrick and the Jets remain far apart on terms to a new contract, which could lead them to address the quarterback position through the draft. That being said, Fitzpatrick is fresh off a career-best 3,905 passing yards and 31 touchdowns last season, and his long-standing relationship with offensive coordinator Chan Gailey could prove invaluable to the Jets' hopes of making the playoffs this season. As a result, Fitzpatrick and New York could still reach a contract agreement, but it appears he'll have to wait a bit longer if that indeed comes to fruition.

Fitzpatrick and the Jets are not close on a new contract, Newsday reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Fitzpatrick is reportedly looking for a deal north of $16 million per season, while the Jets are potentially offering half that amount, which is why the stalemate continues. The Jets brought in Robert Griffin this past week, though he left without a contract offer. The Broncos were also potentially interested in Fitzpatrick, though the addition of Mark Sanchez may have killed that possibility. Fitzpatrick's fantasy potential for 2016 obviously hinges greatly on where he ends up, and he'll find it tough to end up on a team with better wideouts than what the Jets offer in Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker, or the Broncos with Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders.

Fitzpatrick is expected to hit the open market since he and the Jets remain far apart on a potential new contract, NFL.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Fitzpatrick has long been expected to remain with the Jets, but negotiations reportedly haven't gone as smooth as anticipated. After Sam Bradford inked a generous two-year, $36 million deal with the Eagles, questions of Fitzpatrick's market value seemingly clouded talks with the Jets, who are still thought to want to retain Fitzpatrick. However, with no new deal at the moment, the veteran is now slated to hit free agency coming off an impressive 2015 campaign.
