Fitzpatrick signs one-year deal

On Thursday, Bengals quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick signed his one-year tender worth $927,000 as a restricted free agent. It was rumored that the Green Bay Packers had an interest for Fitzpatrick in an effort to build their depth at Quarterback after Brett Favre unexpectedly retired.

The Bengals will have four quarterbacks signed heading into training camp; Carson and Jordan Palmer, Fitzpatrick and sophomore Jeff Rowe. Fitzpatrick is likely to resume the backup role while Rowe and Jordan compete for that coveted third-string spot.
