Manish Mehta is reporting via Twitter that the Jets worked out former Giants punter Matt Dodge yesterday. Dodge is most famous for his failure to kick out of bounds last year, leading to a punt returned for a touchdown to win the game for the Eagles as time expired. Dodge was replaced this year by our very own former punter Steve Weatherford. Dodge is in his second year in the league.
I've heard that Mike Westhoff has been somewhat disappointed in P TJ Conley. Conley has been what we thought he was; a first-year starter. He's had some great punts and some terrible ones. Inconsistency seems to be his biggest flaw.
This may just be a warning shot across the bow for Conley, for him to get his act together. I would be surprised if Dodge is signed, not only because of his ominous history but also because it seems to me to take longer than 7 weeks into the season to know if your first-year will be any good. It's not like Conley has been absolutely terrible or anything.
