Well… Feely no more.
Jets Kicker Jay Feely has signed a 2 year deal with the Arizona Cardinals, with the first year salary to be reportedly the same as his salary with the Jets last season.
The Jets are bringing in former Cardinals kicker Neal Rackers for a tryout this week and expect to sign him to a deal.
Interesting move here by the Jets. Feely was a solid kicker and if you have seen Nick Folk and Neal Rackers in the clutch… well, don’t.
The unreported stat that seems to favor Rackers is the Touchback. Rackers has averaged 14 touchbacks per year since 2004, while Feely is much below that number. With the average starting field position at the 30 this past season, the Touchback can be extremely important to the Jets and their Defense.
Time will tell if Rackers is a Jet….
