Have the Jets Lost Confidence in Nick Folk?

Nick Folk has made a lot of big kicks for the New York Jets. Even playoff game winners. But he also makes people nervous, and has had some misses as well. But has he made the Jets nervous enough to make a change?

Earlier in the week, we took a look at the battle upcoming this summer at the kicker spot, with the addition of veteran Josh Brown to the mix.

In the end, however, my prediction was that Nick Folk will end up winning the battle.  But now, per Manish Mehta of the Daily News has learned that the Jets really wanted to choose a kicker in the recent draft.

Another source has reported that one kicker the Jets were interested in was Blair Walsh, who ended up going to the Vikings in the sixth round.

It makes me wonder if the Jets are more interested in sending Folk out the door than we realized.
