The Jets have finally brought back on of their own via free agency. Just a little while ago, the Jets announced that they have re-signed kicker Nick Folk.
Good decision by the Jets to bring Nick back, he has done a good job for this team since coming over in 2010. He hasn’t missed an extra point as a New York Jet, and after a tough year with Dallas in 2009, he hasn’t been less than 75% with his field goals since coming over.
In three years with the Jets, Folk has averaged 108 points per season, a more than solid job for the team, despite the fact that I wanted Josh Brown to take over the job in 2012.
I can admit being wrong.
It also is a good sign to have the kicker on the roster, so as not waste a draft pick on a kicker. Yes, it’s possible to find a Blair Walsh out there in the college draft, but the Jets would be much better suited to use their draft picks elsewhere.
Welcome back, Mr. Folk.
