Nick Folk signs multiyear deal with Jets

The Jets made sure that kicker Nick Folk wouldn’t leave the team by slapping a franchise tag on him last week.

On Tuesday, they made sure that they wouldn’t have to make the same decision again next season. The team announced that Folk has signed a multiyear agreement with the team.

No financial terms were announced, but Folk would have made $3.55 million in 2014 if he played out the year under the tag.

Folk is heading into his fifth season as a member of the Jets and had another strong year in 2013. He made 33-of-36 field goals, including three game-winning kicks to end Jets victories. His accuracy was the best in his career and upped his career mark to 80.3 percent over seven overall seasons in the NFL.

Folk is the first of this year’s franchise tag recipients to agree to a long-term deal with his team. Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy, Saints tight end Jimmy Graham and Redskins linebacker Brian Orakpo are the other three players to get tagged.

    Proven, clutch kicker who can hit them from 50 plus when the game is on the line. What more could you ask of your kicker? Good signing.
