Biography

 
PRO: The Titans wasted little time acquiring veteran quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick when he became available in mid-March 2013.  The strong-armed signal caller provides experience at the backup quarterback spot.  Entering 2013, the 6-foot-2-inch, 225-pounder has started 68 career games and passed for more than 14,000 yards.  The savvy quarterback known for his pocket awareness and smarts under center arrives in Tennessee after four seasons in Buffalo.  Before playing for the Bills, the Harvard product spent time with the Cincinnati Bengals (2007-2008) and St. Louis Rams (2005-2006).
 
CAREER HIGHLIGHTS:
•    In 2012, Fitzpatrick started all 16 contests for the second consecutive season and tallied 3,400 yards on 306 of 505 passing with 24 touchdowns.
•    In 2011, Fitzpatrick started all 16 games for the first time in his career and set career-bests with 353 completions, 569 pass attempts, 3,832 passing yards and 24 touchdown passes.
•    Fitzpatrick holds the following Buffalo Bills passing records: longest completion and longest play from scrimmage, a 98-yard touchdown pass to Terrell Owens (at Jacksonville, 11/22/09), and longest rushing touchdown for a quarterback – (31 yards vs. Miami 11/29/09).
•    Fitzpatrick became the fifth quarterback in NFL history to throw for 300 yards in a debut, leading St. Louis to a 33-27 overtime win at Houston (11/27/05).  He completed 19 of 30 passes for 310 yards with three touchdowns and one interception for a 117.4 passer rating.

TITANS TIDBITS:  
•    During the pre-draft process, Fitzpatrick scored a 48 out of a possible 50 on the Wonderlic test and completed the test in just nine minutes.
•    Fitzpatrick is the first Harvard graduate to start an NFL game at quarterback.
•    Fitzpatrick never removes his wedding band from his finger, including when playing on the gridiron.  Because he throws right-handed, wearing the ring on his opposite hand does not affect his performance.
