ESPN is reporting that a contract extension for Ryan Fitzpatrick could be completed before Buffalo resumes their 2011 schedule against Washington in Week 8.
That according to Chris Mortensen, who in citing league sources says significant progress on a contract extension has been made in recent weeks. The report says the deal could average between $9 and $12M dollars a season, which is in line with most of the second tier starting quarterbacks in the league.
The Bills are second in the league in scoring behind only the Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers as they’re averaging 31.3 points per game with Fitzpatrick at the helm. Fitzpatrick is in the last year of the three-year contract he signed with the Bills in 2009 as a backup.
