Jets sign Sam Ficken to solve kicking woes, waive Vedvik

  • Two former star NFL kickers crush Jets over their self-made mess of a kicking game

Sam Ficken is back on a National Football League roster. He is 3-for-6 on field goals and 14-for-15 on PATs in four career games with the Rams (in 2017 and 2018). You're the next contestant on the Jets' kicking crusade. But it was former Los Angeles Rams kicker Sam Ficken who impressed the team the most - enough to earn him a contract on the spot.

The Jets opted for Ficken after a morning tryout at their facility that consisted of five free-agent kickers.

Kaare Vedvik's debut with the New York Jets on Sunday was disastrous, complete with two missed kicks in a 17-16 loss to the Buffalo Bills. 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.

Ficken is the fourth kicker on the Jets roster since the beginning of training camp. He made them all.

Officials are actively studying Boris Johnson's plan for a new bridge between Scotland and Northern Ireland, it has emerged. However, only one in five unionists say they are prepared to accept it and 77% would rather leave with no-deal.

The Jets held kicking tryouts in practice on Tuesday and multiple National Football League veterans such as Greg Joseph and Younghoe Koo took part. The Jets let kicker Jason Myers walk in free agency, a Pro Bowler, and have had four kickers thus far this season.

Myers is now with the Seahawks and went a flawless 3-for-3 in Seattle's win over the Bengals on Sunday.

NY opened training camp with Chandler Catanzaro, who surprisingly retired after a shaky preseason opener during which he missed two extra points.

They conducted tryouts and signed Taylor Bertolet, who imploded in the final preseason game. The Jets claimed Vedvik off waivers last week from the Vikings and he bombed on Sunday. "We haven't performed well", Gase said Monday of the kicking situation. "We're going to try to figure out a way to fix it".
