Update- Feely still wants to be a Jet despite signing of Folk
"I'd love to get back there," Feely said from his home in Plantation, Fla. "We have had negotiations and discussions, and they were very pleasant, very positive. They're very pleased with how I kicked over the past couple years and the leadership I showed. [Special teams coordinator] Mike Westhoff and I got along great. It's just a matter of coming to an agreement on a contract."
Asked to comment on the signing of Folk, he replied:
"They're being prudent,"
According to Adam Schefter the Jets have signed Nick Folk to a one year contract, he tweeted:
Filed to ESPN: With K Jay Feely scheduled to become a free agent, the N.Y. Jets signed former Cowboys K Nick Folk to a one-year contract.
Beyond annoyed at this news, makes no sense on any level for me, replaced on kick off's in Dallas, and then was fluffing FG's left, right and centre. Must of done something special in his work out. Dumb move, not exactly the best way to start off the free agency period. Going to be interesting to hear the reason behind this.
