Jets Sign Chandler Catanzaro

The Jets have announced the signing of free agent kicker Chandler Catanzaro. He’s in line to take over for Nick Folk, whom the Jets released in February.Chandler Catanzaro (Vertical)

The 26-year-old Catanzaro spent the first three years of his career in Arizona, where he enjoyed quality 2014 and ’15 campaigns before his performance dropped off in 2016. Catanzaro converted just 75 percent of his 28 field goal attempts last season and missed four of his 47 extra point tries. All told, he hit on a respectable 84.8 percent of 92 field goals as a Cardinal. Catanzaro has also made 96 of 105 PATs since the NFL lengthened the extra point in 2015.

The Jets ranked 31st in special teams DVOA last year, though most of that lackluster production admittedly came in the punting game.

    Nice stats. How do they compare with the other NFL kickers ?
    …otherwise the stats are mildly useless.


    As Cardinal fan, I liked the guy, great leg, but really choked in big games last year. It’s all between the ears, hope he gets it together. Good kid

    This identical to the situation of a young Nick Folk when he had two excellent seasons with Dallas, and then tanked. He was a good kicker for the Jets for the next seven years… Hopefully, Chandler can rebound too… I like the Jets buying low on the kicker an d the left tackle (off of ACL injury)
