Before the Jets open camp for real, one more State of the Jets Address, and that is of the special teams.

One word can sum it up for now, questions. Mike Westhoff(right), may be coming back, but that appears to be the only constant. Let’s take a look at his unit:

KICKING

We have talked about this one at length, so not going to spend a lot of time here. Josh Brown vs, the incumbent Nick Folk. Folk has made a lot of big kicks for the Jets, but has been the cause for a lot of nerves as well. Brown is a career 80% field goal kicker, and is quite consistent. This will be an interesting battle, and one as I have stated that I think Brown will end up winning.

PUNTING

This is another position that causes the Jets great concern. The Jets felt they would get by without Steve Weatherford, letting him go to the Giants last year. That didn’t work. TJ Conley had a very rough season, with a net average of 38.8 yards per kick. He just couldn’t be counted on to pin an opponent back when necessary.
