It looks like the punting competition has been decided.
The Jets have announced that they have waived P Travis Baltz, giving the job to TJ Conley. Baltz actually outpunted Conley on Friday night, but his 34 yard average per punt was nothing to write home about.
Alan has been a passionate Jets fan since 1985. Obviously, that means he is a glutton for punishment, as he has suffered through many Jets disappointments. He remembers Mark Gastineau's late hit in the 1986 AFC Divisional Playoff game like it was yesterday. There have been many more failures than successes, but through it all, Alan has remained true to the Gang Green. He has been blogging for the Jets on various websites for the past 5-6 years. He lives and breathes the NY Jets all year round, and is committed to bringing the Jets passion to "The Jet Press" on a daily basis. Alan has also been recently named to the Pro Football Writers Association. Like what you read? Hit him up on twitter at @thejetpress
