NY Jets: Catanzaro Contract Details

New, comments
Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

According to Overthecap.com, the contract kicker Chandler Catanzaro recently signed with the Jets is a one year deal for $900,000, with $250,000 in guaranteed salary. This makes Catanzaro the 20th highest paid kicker in the NFL.

This deal looks like a nice signing by the Jets.  Catanzaro struggled last season when his snapper and holder kept changing, but over the course of his career Catanzaro has exhibited similar accuracy and a stronger leg than former Jet Nick Folk, and Catanzaro is paid substantially less under this deal.

The $250,000 in guaranteed money somewhat tilts the playing field in favor of Catanzaro over any camp competition, but it is such a minimal amount that Catanzaro can be easily cut if he disappoints.

Mark this one under the good job category for Jets GM Mike Maccagnan.

What about you?  What do you think about this deal?
