Jets Place Franchise Tag On Kicker Nick Folk

New York Jets v Miami Dolphins

The Jets have placed the franchise tag on kicker Nick Folk, who is coming off perhaps the best season of his seven-year NFL career, the Associated Press reports.

The Jets announced the move Friday. Teams have until Monday to designate a player for the franchise tag.

Folk made $780,000 last season, but the franchise tag estimate for kickers is about $3.4 million for this season. Folk was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent and by using the tag, the Jets could potentially set things up for a multiyear deal.
