Jets assigned the franchise tag to K Nick Folk.

It's the non-exclusive tag. The Jets cleared a ton of salary cap room under first-year GM John Idzik in 2013, impressively and quickly cleansing themselves of the Mike Tannenbaum era. Thus, they're able to commit roughly $3.5 million in cap space to Folk, who banged home 33-of-36 field goal tries last season. The sides will likely now work on a long-term agreement. Folk turned 29 in November.

Free agent K Nick Folk wants to re-sign with the Jets but is going to keep "all the options open."

Folk is coming off a career-year that saw him nail 33-of-36 field goals. He made it clear following the season that he eyes a multi-year deal. The 29-year-old expects to engage in contract talks with the Jets near the end of the month.

Impending free agent K Nick Folk is seeking a multi-year contract.

Folk has been kicking on one-year deals for the Jets the past four seasons. He's coming off the best year of his career, which saw him convert 33-of-36 field goals (91.7 percent). Folk also nailed all three of his kicks from 50-plus yards out. He finished as fantasy's No. 12 kicker.

Jets K Nick Folk is 23-of-23 on field goals this season.

That includes an 11-of-11 mark from 40-49 yards and three straight games with at least three makes. He leads the NFL in field goals made. The piping-hot Folk will be a top-10 fantasy kicking option when the Jets come out of their bye at Buffalo in Week 10.

Jets K Nick Folk has six game-winning field goals since 2010.

Folk's latest triumph was a 43-yarder as time expired to beat the Falcons Monday night. He also beat the Bucs in Week 1 with a 48-yard boot. Folk is 11-of-11 on the year, including a 6-of-6 mark from 40-plus. Still, fantasy owners should be looking for kickers that play in more consistent offenses. The Jets have been held to 20 points or less in four of their five games.

Jets re-signed K Nick Folk to a one-year contract.

Folk, 28, made just 21-of-27 field goal attempts last season, but that 77.8 percent rate was his best since 2008. Folk also handles kickoff duties for Gang Green.

Special teams coach Mike Westhoff suggested the Jets kicking job is no longer Nick Folk's to lose.

Westhoff concedes that Folk had the edge entering last summer's competition with Nick Novak, but that won't be the case with Josh Brown this time around. Westhoff was disappointed that the position wasn't upgraded during the draft, as the Jets were believed to be interested in Vikings sixth-rounder Blair Walsh.

Jets re-signed K Nick Folk.

Folk converted just 19-of-25 field-goal attempts in 2011, but will hang onto his job by a thread for another offseason. The Jets are determined to bring in competition to push him in camp.
Wed, Mar 14, 2012 01:57:00 PM

Nick Folk's one-year deal with the Jets will not guarantee the Week 1 kicking job.

The Jets signed Nick Novak back in February, and one team source expects him to give Folk a run for his money. Novak will have to out-kick Folk by a wide margin to win the job.

Jets agreed to terms with K Nick Folk.

Folk's hold on the Jets' kicking job seemed tenuous from offseason practices through the end of last season, but he did connect on 30 field goals, good for fourth in the league. Perhaps more importantly, Folk drilled all 10 eight of his post-season field goal attempts.

The New York Post expects the Jets to re-sign free agent K Nick Folk.

The Jets signed Nick Novak before the lockout, but unless they decide to go after somebody like free agent David Akers, Folk will likely again be the man for Gang Green. Folk has a huge leg, but has averaged over 10 field-goal misses per season the past three years.

Coach Rex Ryan is inclined to stick with Nick Folk this week after the kicker missed a long field goal Monday night.

Ryan is taking the blame for Folk's 53-yarder that never came close to the uprights. "Maybe that's something I need to look at, is maybe not attempt that kind of kick, his first kick of the day," Ryan said. Folk isn't a fantasy option until he proves far more reliable.

The New York Daily News' Manish Mehta reports that the Jets are likely to stick with Nick Folk for the Week 13 game against the Patriots.

The Jets had Kris Brown in for a workout Tuesday. Mehta says the decision is "not written in stone," but it sounds like Folk will be given one more chance to kick for his job Monday night.

ESPN's Rich Cimini has learned that the Jets are checking into the availability of free agent kickers.

Cimini reports that the team will work out an unidentified kicker on Tuesday. Jeff Reed, Kris Brown, and Matt Stover are the top names on the market. If you own Nick Folk, feel free to swap him for another kicker.
