You wait a long time for the Jets to do anything, and then they end up making two signings in the space of minutes.

The Jets have signed former Arizona Cardinals kicker Chandler Catanzaro according to various reports.

The Jets parted ways with Nick Folk earlier this off-season, so the signing of Catanzaro will come as no surprise.

The former Cardinal was replaced by 42 year old Phil Dawson in Arizona. Catanzaro experienced a rough year in 2016 making just 21 of 28 field goals, while also missing 4 extra points.

It was a big decline for Chandler, as he flourished in 2015 making over 90% of his kicks. It's also important to note that he's only 26, so he still has a lot of potential and plenty of time to develop into a reliable kicker.
