New York Jets Offseason: Kyle Brindza Ruptures Achilles

Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

The Jets recently signed kicker Kyle Brindza. He will not kick with the Jets this season, however. He ruptured his Achilles tendon.

Brindza had more the profile of a camp body than somebody seriously expected to compete for the kicker job. I was guessing he would not even make it to training camp if the Jets drafted a kicker late or signed a priority undrafted free agent. Still, you never want to see something like this. Hopefully Brindza has a full recovery.
