The Jets have a competition in training camp between long-time kicker Nick Folk and rookie Ross Martin this year. Yesterday, Martin showed off a big leg.
UDFA K Ross Martin 5-6. Wide left from 38 but hit from 50 and 60. #NYJ— Chris Lopresti (@CLoprestiWFAN) August 2, 2016
Nick Folk 4-6. Wide right from 50 and wide left from 60. Had enough distance on both though. #NYJ— Chris Lopresti (@CLoprestiWFAN) August 2, 2016
Todd Bowles might have tipped his hand a bit chatting to the media, however. He seemed to indicate the incumbent would have an edge.
On what Ross Martin has to do to make the team…
He’s got to make them all. He’s going to have to perform in preseason. Obviously (Nick) Folk is going to have to look pretty bad for him. It’s a good competition right now, we’re just going to see how it plays out.
