Ryan Fitzpatrick is still a kid at heart.
With minicamp officially underway for NFL teams, the 38-year-old as well as some of his teammates posed for a picture with a mini chalkboard in his hands. Fitzpatrick’s chalkboard was titled “Ryan’s first day of Year 17.”
The chalkboard featured a handful of categories, such as Fitzpatrick’s teacher, his new friends, his age and height.

“He’s such a unique look and a unique character and his delivery is as dry as can be, and he just drops these one-liners and bombs on guys and they don’t even know what happened,” Zampese said, via ProFootballTalk. “He’s got a great deal of swag for such a — I don’t know what you’d say about the exterior. I love him. He’s authentic through all of it which is the important part. He’s got a lot to give, he’s got a lot of experiences and he doesn’t worry about what anybody else thinks. He’s just Ryan.”
