Jets place the Franchise Tag on Kicker Nick Folk

The New York Jets have announced via their Twitter feed that they have put the Franchise tag on kicker Nick Folk.  This was a very good move by the Jets’ brass.

The Jets didn’t want Nick Folk to test free agency but now this buys them time to work on a long term contract in which he deserves with his solid play.  Other players the Jets have as free agents are Howard, Pace, and Cumberland.  All have been rumored to be working on deals.
