Somehow, Jets K Nick Folk kept his job all season despite a few shaky performances – he made 30 of 39 field goals this year but slumped in November and ranked 29th among the 35 kickers who made at least 10 attempts.
But next season, he’ll have some competition.
According to NFL.com’s Jason La Canfora, the Jets have signed UFL standout Nick Novak – who has limited NFL experience but who also made 15 of 18 attempts this season with the Florida Tuskers to lead the league in points scored while being named the league’s special teams MVP.
Folk will be a free agent in 2011, and though he’s said he wants to return to New York, that obviously isn’t a certainty at this point.
