During their push to the playoffs, the Dallas Cowboys made a change at kicker.
Nick Folk, a Pro Bowler as a rookie in 2007, was abruptly cut, not long after the Cowboys considered putting him on injured reserve in the hopes that he’d work through whatever it was that has caused him to develop a case of the kicking yips.
Instead, he’s on the market, and he’ll be heading to one town later this week for two tryouts.
Per a league source, Folk is heading to New York, where he’ll work out for both the Giants and the Jets.
The Jets’ kicker, Jay Feely is due to become an unrestricted free agent. For the Giants, Lawrence Tynes is under contract through 2010 at salaries of $1.1 million this year, $1.2 million in 2011, and $1.3 million in 2012.
