Jets Sign Kicker Greg Zuerlein

Bestinau got that-

The Jets have signed veteran kicker Greg Zuerlein.

Zuerlein is the first kicker with a quality NFL track record that Joe Douglas has signed since he became general manager in 2019. During Douglas’ tenure, the kicker role was a chronic problem for the Jets. The general manager has responded by drawing inexperienced kicker after inexperienced kicker.

Zuerlein has spent the past two seasons with the Cowboys. He was with the Rams from 2012 through 2019. His most notable moment was a 57-meter field goal to win the NFC Championship Game in overtime against the Saints in 2018.

Zuerlein is known as one of the biggest legs in the league, scoring a solid 82.2% of field goals throughout his career.

He will likely compete with incumbent Kicker Eddy Pineiro in training camp. Hopefully this ends kicker being such a non-stop problem area for this team. Finally, there is someone who has proven himself in the role.
