Jets stay in the Nick Folk business

Nick Folk became a, pardon the expression, folk hero around New York after he hit a 32-yard field goal to beat the Colts in the first round of the playoffs.

He’ll get a chance to add to his burgeoning legend in 2011. Folk’s agents tweeted that their client and the Jets agreed to terms on a one-year contract Wednesday. No financial terms have been disclosed at this point.

Folk made 30-of-39 field goals during the regular season in his first season with the Jets. Folk kicked for the Cowboys before coming to New York, but lost his job in 2009 thanks to erratic kicking following offseason hip surgery. He’s the third member of the Jets to re-sign with the team, joining Santonio Holmes and Wayne Hunter.

    Dude this guy has the leg of a 10 year old. The only good news is that they will move the kickoff down ten yards, he still won’t get it in the endzone on most kicks i bet.
