BREAKING: Josh Brown Out, Nick Folk Wins Jets Kicking Job

It started with a tweet this morning from the man himself, and it has been confirmed.

Kicker Josh Brown tweeted this morning that he wished the Jets best of luck, and thanking them for a great camp, implying that he lost the kicking competition. Then, Jenny Vrentas of the Star-Ledger confirmed it was true, that Josh Brown has been released, and Nick Folk has won the job as the kicker of the New York Jets.

Mike Westhoff called it the best competition that he has been around, and a decision has finally been made to settle it. It came down to last night, and Nick Folk was a perfect 3-3, while Josh Brown missed from 45 yards out.

In the Monday Morning Quarterback, we speculated that the one miss by Josh Brown was going to decide the battle, and apparently it did. So for all of us that have had restless moments due to Nick Folk, well, it looks like they are going to continue. Nick Folk is our guy, for the 3rd straight year.
