Didn't the Jets spend like a 2nd round draft pick a few years ago on that kicker from Ohio State? Do most teams carry more then one FG kicker?

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!

Mike Nugent.  I'm sure they brought Mark in to just give some competition, if he impresses maybe he can latch on someplace else, but I doubt he'd be beating out a solid kicker they used a second round pick on a few years ago.

Nugent was a high draft pick, but he's not one of the top kickers in the NFL.

No but he's only been in the league 3-4 years I don't think the Jets are willing to admit they made a mistake with him, at least not yet. If he gets hurt or does really poorly during pre-season Meyers can find himself with the job. If Meyers can impress and do well but doesn't make the Jets he could find himself possibly on another team
