Looks like Nick Folk is going to be hanging around for another year…
Jets release K Dan Carpenter, per source. Nick Folk is Week 1 kicker for Jets—

Bent, TheJetsBlog.comThis was one that I couldn’t call, but I guess the tie should go to the incumbent. Folk missed a field goal and had one kickoff that went out of bounds during preseason, but did everything else right.
Carpenter obviously didn’t impress enough to unseat Folk. He made his only field goal last night, but it almost hit the upright.
Brian Bassett, TheJetsBlog.comWe’ll see if bigger names don’t come on the market in the next few days, but the Jets gave Carpenter a try. Carpenter always seemed like a lateral move at best to us, which made it us think while difficult to tell who would win out, it would still be Folk’s to lose.
