by Phil Sullivan on March 17, 2013

The Jets have seen several starters from last season leave the team in the first few days of free agency.  One position that the Jets won’t need a replacement for is Kicker.  The team re-signed Nick Folk on Saturday.

From the Jets PR Department:

The New York Jets have re-signed unrestricted free agent K Nick Folk

Folk (K/6-1/222/Arizona/Hollywood, CA) has spent the last three seasons with the Jets after joining the team as a free agent (02/23/10). He was originally drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in the sixth round of the 2007 NFL Draft, spending three years with the club before being waived (12/21/09). In six career seasons, Folk has appeared in 94 games and has converted 134-of-172 field goal attempts (77.9%) and all 242 PAT tries. In 2012, Folk kicked in 16 games and hit 21-of-27 field goals (77.8%) and all 30 of his PAT attempts.

Several beat reporters confirmed the signing as well:

I started JetNation in 2005 and have been a New York Jets season ticket holder since graduating from high school. My dream is to see the New York Jets win the Super Bowl. Until then, I will be right here on JetNation writing, dreaming and talking NY Jets football.
