Placekicker Nick Folk, who late last season expressed an interest in signing a long-term deal with the Jets, has signed a multiyear contract.

Folk, who was franchise-tagged on Feb. 28, enjoyed in 2013 arguably his best season in seven seasons as a pro and four with the Jets. He hit the game-winning field goals in the season opener against Tampa Bay, at Atlanta and at home in overtime against New England.

He remains among the NFL's top three most accurate fourth-quarter kickers of the past 24 seasons, with his 92.2% career rate (47-for-51) trailing only Stephen Gostkowski (96.9%) and Denver's Matt Prater (94.0%).

Those game-winning kicks were three of the career-high 33 field goals he made in 36 attempts for a career-high 91.7% accuracy. He also broke our franchise records for most consecutive field goals from the start of a season (23) and most consecutive home field goals (20), and he recorded a career-high 30 kickoff touchbacks.

For his Jets career, Folk has an 81.1% accuracy on his regular-season field goal tries (103-for-127) and for his career the figure is 80.3% (167-for-208).

While I do like this signing, it just seems weird that we would announce it today, the first day of FA. We had him franchised. It didn't matter whether or not it got done. He wasn't going anywhere. We should have been focusing on other players IMO.

 

Odd.
