Neil Rackers is on Jets radar
New York Jets kicker Nick Folk shouldn't get too comfortable.
The Jets clearly aren't comfortable with turning over the job to Folk, not after departing kicker Jay Feely said Friday the club wanted him back and especially not after reading Adam Schefter's report the Jets were flying in Neil Rackers for a visit.
Rackers is available because Feely has supplanted him with the Arizona Cardinals. Feely agreed to a two-year deal.
Rackers spent the past seven seasons with Arizona. He made 16 of his 17 field-goal attempts last year, but suffered a serious groin injury late in the season and missed two games.
Arizona Republic reporter Kent Somers wrote the Cardinals wanted Rackers back, but they had trouble negotiating a new deal.
Folk is coming off a disastrous season. The Dallas Cowboys waived him two games before the playoffs. He missed a kick in each of his final six games.
