08:06 AM ET 02.10 | On Wednesday, the Jets signed some competition -- if not a replacement -- for kicker Nick Folk in the form of veteran Nick Novak to a reserve/future contract. Novak, who played in college at Maryland, was named the Special Teams Player of the Year in the United Football League this past season. He actually was a wanted NFL entity last season, but his UFL team, The Florida Tuskers, wouldn't release him when the Chargers wanted to sign him during the regular season. The Chargers were willing to pay a $150,000 transfer fee and still were denied.

A kicker? Must be his feet.

I'm sure Chico will endorse this move.

If he was any good Dallas would have kept him. Another draft pick blunder by JJ even though it was a sixth rounder.

The later round picks are throwaways, very few good or decent selections come out of them, see Brady, Tom.

Wonder who's number is on that wall?

but kickers? waste of any pick.

kickers are a dime a dozen. I think they sell them at Walmart!

Fire this guy. He stank up the field. His replacement kicked a 54 yarder last year.

I don't know about him.... Usually follow SEC instead of Maryland even though I live damn near behind the campus.

I'm sure it's "all mental".

I believe Terrell Davis was a sixth round pick, also. But you're right, sixth round picks are a luxury if they pan out. And no big deal if they don't.

Didn't Novak have a swim through the Skins organization? Seems like I recall him missing a FG or two that raised your ire.

I don't recall... The memories of Suisham still linger as far as our worse kicker, before that sorry **** Gano that we have now.

Here's a tip. Avoid all former Cowboy kickers.
