    Jets pick up an alternative to Nick Folk

    Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on February 9, 2011, 3:30 PM EST

    New York’s gamble to go with kicker Nick Folk in 2010 didn’t totally backfire.

    While Jay Feely had a Pro Bowl season in Arizona, Folk was mostly good until a November slump almost cost him his job. He missed a kick against the Patriots, but otherwise hit a few huge playoff kicks, including the game-winner against the Colts.

    Folk is a free agent after the year, however, and the Jets have started to look for other options. The team signed Nick Novak to a contract Wednesday, as first reported by NFL.com’s Jason La Canfora.

    Novak spent most of 2010 in the UFL, where he led the league in scoring.

    So much for bringing him in for a kicking competition.

    Expected....

    In other words the guy that the Chargers may have brought in for competition is not available.

    Was Nick Novak the only kicker available this offseason?

    No, there are not a lot of kickers who are worth looking at in FA.

    IMHO

    Wait... so can we start cutting some of our worthless guys and hope the Jets pick them up too, since they seem to love to dumpster dive our bins?

    Can we cut BusteD and let Clary walk and hope to God that they're Jets next year when we play them? It's kind of some weird addition by subtraction by addition logic... especially since we play the Jets next season (adding pass rush by subtracting Clary from us and adding him to the Jets). I think I'm on to something!
