The Jets have extended at least two different contract offers to free-agent quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

This means it’s possible the Jets have extended a one- or two-year deal to Fitzpatrick in addition to his standing offer of $24 million over three years, with $15 million guaranteed.

The 33-year-old still hasn’t signed a contract and reportedly remains millions of dollars apart with the Jets, with whom he enjoyed a career year in 2015. Earlier in the off-season, it was reported that Fitzpatrick would accept a one-year deal worth $12 million.

Wideout Brandon Marshall recently revealed that Fitzpatrick had halted communication with him.

The Jets currently have three quarterbacks on their roster: fourth-year signal caller Geno Smith, who figures to be the starter; 2015 fourth-round selection Bryce Petty; and Penn State’s Christian Hackenberg, who the team took in the second round of this year’s draft.
