I think the way to go is to bring back Ammendola to the PS when/if he clears waivers today, and add a veteran to the 53 to kick in the short term.  We worked out Eddy Piñeiro recently, and he would be a decent option as he has some solid pro experience.

Kessman should be cut. Despite his college reputation as a long-distance specialist, I'm really not wowed by his natural leg strength. When Ammendola kicked the ball, you could really see (and hear) the pure power. I just don't see that With Kessman - plus he obviously can't be relied on even for the short kicks, which Ammendola did make regularly (perfect on FGs inside 40 yards, 1 missed EP).

Let Piñeiro (or whoever) kick for now, and try to work with Ammendola to hone his technique and consistency. He's got an immensely powerful leg, so I think he's worth keeping around to coach up and to give him a shot to compete in camp with a veteran kicker.

Great call, Kev. 

Amendola wasn’t good.

I wasn’t at practice all week. I guess JD and the staff thought Kesserman was better

Clearly he stinks as well.

Why can’t JD find a kicker is beyond me but blaming some season ticket holder up in the 300s for posting on this forum ain’t prob the right route to take

JD is probably trying to instill an accountability in the locker room and Amendola was an easy target to maybe get that message across. It blew up in his face. Wonder how the roster feels about it as a whole. None of us can guess, as we are not in the room. You don't get many of those cards to play until someone says it is YOU that is the problem.

I think they should’ve stuck with Amendola. Kid’s got a cannon for a leg and I don’t care if the Jets lose games by an extra point or a field goal. It just doesn’t matter this year. But if you can straighten that big leg out, you actually have a commodity there going forward. He was missed on kick offs yesterday. I hope they bring him back.

The difference between Ammendola's leg strength and Kessman's is glaring. Bring Ammendola back, try to refine his technique. Kid has a cannon and could be really good with some development.
