The New York Jets have signed veteran kicker Billy Cundiff to a contract.
Cundiff, 33, appeared in five games for Washington last season making just 7-of-12 attempts. After his release from the Redskins he was signed by San Francisco but did not play.
In 2011 Cundiff missed a crucial field goal in the AFC Championship game between Baltimore and New England which would have tied the game. The Ravens replaced him with Justin Tucker in 2012.
The Jets hosted Cundiff as well as receivers Austin Collie and Laurent Robinson for workouts yesterday.
Cundiff will be in training camp to push Nick Folk for the starting job. In order to make room for Cundiff on the roster the Jets waived kicker Brett Maher.

Here at Turn On The Jets, we decided to take a page out of Robert Mays book over at Grantland (a polite way of saying rip his article idea off) by counting down the 115 days until the New York Jets kick off, with a daily reason to get excited about their return.

It looks like the bright lights of the New York media are starting to heat up not only Rex Ryan’s seat but his temper as well. In Ryan’s first two seasons in New York he reached the AFC championship. He has yet to have a winning season since then. The Jets haven’t given fans much to be excited about in the last couple of seasons and I’m sure Rex Ryan is tired of the being...
The biggest question right now for the New York Jets is who will their starting quarterback be for the upcoming season. Many people believe it will be Mark Sanchez.

Mark Sanchez is all about vanity. As a rookie, he posed for a spread in GQ, showing his NFL counterparts he was more than just your regular NFL player. Now this would be one hell of a vanity plate for the New York Jets captain. I’m just not sure though if they’ll be able to squeeze in Butt before Fumble-TO

The quarterback competition between Mark Sanchez and Geno Smith is the most interesting storyline to follow from New York Jets training camp this summer.
