Analysis: Johnson spoke Monday at the NFL owners' meetings when asked about the team's negotiations with Ryan Fitzpatrick. Fitzpatrick comes off the best season of his 11-year career, one in which he led the Jets to a 10-6 record even though he was brought in last offseason to back up Geno Smith. Fitzpatrick got the starting job in training camp when Smith's jaw was broken by a teammate's punch, and he performed so well that he nearly got New York back into the playoffs.

Analysis: Both sides have said they would like a reunion, but it appears it will have to be at the right price. After a season in which he set the Jets' franchise record with 31 touchdown passes, Fitzpatrick was expected to draw interest from a handful of teams. But the veteran quarterback could be waiting things out to see how other teams' situations play out.
