Jets re-sign K Folk to 4-year deal

AP - Sports

NEW YORK (AP) -- The New York Jets have re-signed kicker Nick Folk to a four-year contract, less than two weeks after placing the franchise tag on him.

The team announced the multiyear deal Tuesday, shortly after the NFL's free agency period began. It did not release the terms.

Folk wrote on his Instagram page: ''(hash)4moreyears So excited to be back!''

Folk, coming off perhaps the best season of his seven-year NFL career, was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent. Folk had said late last season he believed he had earned a potential long-term deal after making 33 of 36 field-goal attempts, including three winning kicks. He also broke the franchise records for most consecutive field goals from the start of a season (23) and most consecutive home field goals (20). Folk also had a career-high 30 touchbacks on his kickoffs.
