    Concerned by Nick Folk's recent downturn, the New York Jets are checking into available kickers, ESPNNewYork.com has learned. On Tuesday, they're scheduled to work out veteran free agent Kris Brown, according to a league source.

    Folk, who played a major role in two of the Jets' first six wins, has missed five of his last 10 field-goal attempts. In last Thursday night's win over the Cincinnati Bengals, he was unsuccessful from 44 yards, almost missed an extra point (he got a good bounce off the upright) and came up short on three kickoffs.

    The Jets, preparing for next Monday night's first-place showdown against the New England Patriots, aren't a stand-pat team under general manager Mike Tannenbaum and coach Rex Ryan. If they sense a problem, they will try to fix it.....

    lol. Yeah. At the very least, though, I give them credit for actually FIXING a current problem instead of letting it fester the rest of the season. They see the playoffs, and are thinking "Ok, we need to deal with this problem."

    Yeah, the Jets signed Folk this offseason after they let Feely go to the Cardinals. I would guess they will owe Folk some cash if they cut him, but obviously winning is more important to them than a couple million bucks.

    Welp, at least he'll get to go to the playoffs. Good luck, KB, hope you stick with them.

    Looks like Folk is going to hang on to his job for at least another week.

    Wow, I missed Brown getting cut by the Chargers. When did that happen?

    When Kaeding got healthy, and they had to add Vincent Jackson to the 53 man roster (before this past weekend's games).

    Maybe he'll help the Jets lose a few games in December.
