Jets To Sign K Chandler Catanzaro

The Jets have found their kicker. Brian Costello of the New York Post reports (via Twitter) that the team has signed veteran Chandler Catanzaro.

It’s a reunion of sorts for Catanzaro, who spent the 2017 campaign with the Jets. He ended up parlaying his solid performance into a three-year deal with the Buccaneers last offseason, but he struggled during his brief stint with Tampa Bay. The 28-year-old ended up only connecting on 73.3-percent of his field goal attempts and 85.2-percent of his extra point attempts before being released by the team in November.

Catanzaro ended up catching on with the Panthers for the stretch run. In four games, the kicker converted all five of his field goal attempts and seven of his eight extra point attempts.

Veteran kicker Jason Myers appeared in all 16 games for the Jets in 2018. The 27-year-old ended up agreeing to a four-year deal with the Seahawks earlier this week.
