Nick Folk is set for another year as the Jets’ kicker.

Folk, who had been the Jets’ kicker for the last three seasons but entered free agency without a contract, re-signed with the team today.

Last season Folk made 21 of his 27 field goal attempts, with a long of 54 yards. He doesn’t have a particularly strong leg on kickoffs, with just 12 touchbacks on 68 kickoffs.

A year ago Folk had to beat out Josh Brown in training camp, and it’s possible Folk will have a training camp challenge again this year, but at the moment he’s the only kicker on the Jets’ roster.
