Jets Sign K Sam Ficken

Los Angeles Rams kicker Sam Ficken kicks the ball as punter Johnny Hekker holds during an NFL football game against the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday Sept. 27 2018 in Los Angeles. Los Angeles won 38-31

The Green Bay Packers signed Ficken to their preseason roster, but cut him in favor of veteran kicker Mason Crosby.

Ficken is now the fourth kicker the Jets have had since the start of training camp, which is ridiculous.

After Vedvik missed a field goal and an extra point attempt during the Jets' 17-16 loss to the Buffalo Bills in Week 1, NY waived him and signed Sam Ficken on Tuesday to be their new kicker moving forward.

Vedvik hit an extra point off the left upright early in Sunday's loss before missing a 45-yard field goal attempt later in the game. While he didn't attempt a kick during the 2018 regular season, Ficken made two of his three field goal attempts during the 2017 season, and also made four of his five point-after attempts.

Jets head coach Adam Gase expressed his frustration in his team's kicking performance after NY lost by a point in their season-opener.

Boris Johnson seeks cost estimates for a Scotland-Northern Ireland bridge
This represents a lead of 51% to 49% for unification when those who said they don't know and would not vote are excluded. Professor Dunlop suggested the cost of such a project would be somewhere in the region of £15 billion to £20 billion.

Could he be the answer at the kicker position that the Jets have been searching for?

Ficken's only National Football League experience is filling in for injured Los Angeles Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein in 2017 and 2018.

"What do you want me to do? We're going to try to figure out a way to fix it". A familiar face in Taylor Bertolet was brought back only for him to prove that he wasn't the answer after a disastrous summer. But they had some help from Vedvik.

Not too long ago, the Minnesota Vikings felt they acquired someone who could potentially solve their recent kicking troubles. Gase was part of that decision, but he was in no mood to reflect on it. "I don't even remember what was discussed".
