JetNation Posted March 29, 2022 Share Posted March 29, 2022 The New York Jets have announced that kicker Matt Ammendola has been released. He struggled with the team last year, was released, and eventually was brought back. With the signing of veteran kicker Greg Zuerlein, who will compete with Eddy Pineiro, the Jets have the kicking competition they want for training camp. Ammendola first signed with the Green & White on July 30 and was the team’s kicker through the first 11 games in 2021 before he was released on Dec. 4. He made 68.4% of his field-goal attempts (13 of 19) with a long of 49 and 93.3% of his extra-point attempts (14 of 15). Ammendola, who went undrafted out of Oklahoma State in 2020, signed with the team’s practice squad on Dec. 7 before signing a reserve/future contract on Jan. 10.
