Fitzpatrick signed a two-year contract with the Titans last March. Fitzpatrick told The Associated Press on Friday, "You can say I've been released, yes." According to Jim Wyatt of the Tennesseean, the Titans have informed Ryan Fitzpatrick of his release. Given the game of backup quarterback musical chairs going on, there are places for Fitzpatrick to land. Fitzpatrick had a $500,000 roster bonus and a $2.75 million base salary coming, and with Whitehurst on hand to hold the clipboard , he was redundant. He started nine games for the Titans last season and went 217 of 350 for 2,454 yards with 14 touchdown passes and 12 interceptions. Whitehurst, also 31, has gone 84 of 155 for 805 yards passing with four interceptions and three touchdown passes in 13 NFL games.
