Nick Folk is still the Jets’ kicker.

The Jets cut Dan Carpenter today, meaning Folk is the kicker who will make it on the Jets’ 53-man roster, according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News.

Folk had plenty of competition throughout the offseason, as the Jets had previously brought in Billy Cundiff to compete with him. But after getting a look at both Carpenter and Cundiff, the Jets decided to stick with the guy they had, and Folk will enter his fourth season as the Jets’ kicker.

    Well you didn’t want them to get one thing right, did you? Then what would you do?

  3. I guess they got all the inside info on the Dolphins that they needed. I’m sure it will come in handy.

  4. Shouldn’t the headline have read Jets cut Carpenter, Folk loses kicking competition ?

  5. Dan Carpenter lost 2 games for the fish last year by missing game winning kicks. One of those games was to the Jets.

    This will be Folk’s 4th year with the Jets and hasn’t cost them a game yet
