Roster News: Jets Add Kicker

In the spirit of John Idzik mandated competition, the Jets have brought someone in to compete with recently re-signed placekicker Nick Folk:

Dimke made 40 and 31 yard field goals and three extra points in preseason last year with the Lions. The Lions themselves signed Havard “Kickalicious” Rugland today, a guy who the Jets were interested in a month or two ago.

While it’s most likely Dimke will be a camp body, he has a chance to beat out Folk or – thinking outside the box – perhaps could catch on as a kickoff specialist.
