The Jets have signed undrafted rookie placekicker Brett Maher, agent Robert Roche said Sunday on Twitter.

Maher, a Nebraska product, took part in the Jets’ weekend rookie minicamp on a tryout basis.

Maher (6-0, 186) connected on 20-of-27 field goals in 2012 for the Cornhuskers. He was 3-of-5 of field goals of 50 yards or more and 6-of-11 from this range in two seasons as Nebraska’s field goal kicker. Overall, Maher hit 39-of-50 field goal attempts in his collegiate career.

The Jets re-signed kicker Nick Folk in March. They also added kicker Derek Dimke, a first-year pro, in April.

    Kickers are a lot like closers in baseball. A handful are consistent but a large amount of turnover yearly.

    When Maher was a walk-on he was great, then we gave him a scholarship and he started missing kicks, so I don’t know how he is going to do playing for money.

    When news comes out from players agent instead of media who covers jets explains one thing….. Their new GM harsh about his organizations reputation. Which I guess is a good thing. Jets fans should be glad that its not the offseason one like last year.

    Has anyone reached out to Bret Maher for a comment on how he feels about not having Tim Tebow there as protection?

    Those conversion numbers don’t sound great.
