The Jets have announced they have signed Nick Folk to a multiyear deal (Jets, March 11).
Folk’s deal is worth $4.1 million guaranteed over four years. His 2014 cap hit is $3.6 million (Corry, March 11).
Brian Bassett, TheJetsBlog.comPardon us, but this seems an odd time to be worrying about Nick Folk. Amidst players flying off the shelves all around the league this seems like the last thing that they needed to address right now … couldn’t they backburner Folk for a few days?
Whatever. We are happy that the Jets did this deal even if it did come in the first hour of free agency with almost $40 million in cap space. Based on Folk’s kicks for the Jets over the last few years this was a deal he deserved and this year was the right time to do it. It’s just something that might have waited a day or two.
