Jets pick up Nick Folk

Former Cowboys kicker Nick Folk will get a chance to restart his career with the Jets.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the 2007 Pro Bowler was signed to a one-year year deal.  The starting job is reportedly Folk’s to lose, which means that unrestricted free agent Jay Feely will have to base his twitter operation from a different locale next season.

(Cue the “That’s all Folks” headline in New York.)

The news may come as a surprise to some Jets fans, but Feely struggled down the stretch and is eight years older than Folk.  Feely was weak on kickoffs, but Folk isn’t much better.
