Good move. Let's get him signed to a long-term deal now.

Franchise tag estimate for kickers is about $3.4 million. Folk made $780,000 last season. Nice raise. #Jets

Folk is a heck of a kicker. He had 3 Game-Winning kicks this year and has 7 since joining the Green & White in 2010. Looks good in G&W.

@MMehtaNYDN: Official franchise number for kickers in 2014: $3.556M, per @AlbertBreer. So, that's the number for Jets PK Nick Folk, who was tagged #nyj

@caplannfl: On #Jets K Nick Folk, he signed for minimum salary benefit last year, so the team couldn't sign him to a long-term deal until 3/11.

First good move of the off season, Folk did a outstanding job for the Jets last season. We still have a long way to go.

I'm very glad we put the tag on him. This will give the jets time to sign him to a long term deal. He should get a 3-5 year deal. The guy has been on the last few years. It is very hard to find a kicker who will do well in the north east. The only problem is his kickoffs. I would like for the jets to sign a strong leg punter who can also kick off.

@corryjoel: Nick Folk got $12M over 4 years with $2.1M guaranteed. His '14 cap number is $3.6M. It was $3.556M with the franchise tag.

Only $2.1 million guaranteed. Nice deal.
