The signing of Nick Folk would appear to close the door on the Jay Feely era with the Jets, but the kicker/political commentator hopes that isn’t true.
“I appreciate all
the support from the Jets fans,” Feely tweeted Wednesday. “I have truly enjoyed being a Jet and my
sincere wish is to be one til the end of my career.”
It sounds like Feely isn’t afraid of competing with Folk. But the Jets seem unlikely to offer Feely a great deal if they already have another decent option in house. Feely says he’s had positive contract talks with the Jets and understands the move.
“They’re being prudent,” Feely said of Folk’s signing.
Feely may get a clear offer to be a starter as a free agent elsewhere. If not, it wouldn’t be surprising to see him back in New York.
