This morning, we take a look at a guy that is going to bring some competition to the punter position during Jets training camp. He was an undrafted free agent signed by the Colts in 2011, they released him, and he has now found his way to the Jets. Spotlight on P Travis Baltz, University of Maryland.

Here is some video on the Jets young punter:

There isn’t a lot to say on a punter, but I will give you some brief comments.

PROS:This young man can kick. That is clear from the above video. He has got a strong leg, there are several clips of returners having to backpedal on the football, which is obviously a big asset in the field position game. He also gets the ball out lightning fast. The way he gets the football away, there is no chance for the rush to get there. He also has an innate ability to get the backspin on the shorter punts. Like a golfer hitting a pitching wedge on the green, he can put the ball near the goaline without it touching, and then get it rolling back away from the endzone like nobody’s business.
