Nick Folk: Released by Jets
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(2/23/2017) Folk was released by the Jets on Thursday.

Folk was the Jets kicker for the past seven seasons. For his career he's converted 81.3 percent of his field goals, including 27 or 31 in 2016. It appears the Jets cut ties with Folk to free up some salary cap room, but it remains unclear who'll be their kicker in 2017. Folk is free to sign with any team.

Seahawks' Blair Walsh: Signs with Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(2/9/2017) Walsh signed a contract with the Seahawks on Thursday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Walsh struggled mightily in 2016, missing four extra points and making 12-of-16 field goal attempts prior to being released in November. Steven Hauschka, the Seahawks' kicker in 2016, will be a free agent upon the end of the league year, meaning Walsh could be set to handle the kicking duties in Seattle in 2017.

Shayne Graham: Announces retirement
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(2/6/2017) Graham announced his retirement from the NFL on Monday.

Graham hangs up his cleats after kicking for 10 teams across his 15 professional seasons. The 39-year-old is most recognized for his seven-year stint with the Bengals, which included a Pro-Bowl selection in 2005. After going undrafted out of Virginia Tech in 2000, Graham finishes his career with an impressive 85.5 percent success rate on field goals and 1,260 total points scored.

Patriots' Stephen Gostkowski: Will play in Super Bowl
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(1/30/2017) Gostkowski (illness) will play in Sunday's Super Bowl against the Falcons, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reports.

Gostkowski dealt with a two-day stomach illness recently, which forced him to sit out Thursday's practice. Due to the nature of his absence, it doesn't seem like he'll be limited in any way for Sunday's important game.

Patriots' Stephen Gostkowski: Misses practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(1/26/2017) Gostkowski (illness) missed Thursday's practice, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

Given that the Super Bowl isn't until Feb. 5, Gostkowski has plenty of time to overcome his illness before the Patriots' big game. After logging 127 points in the regular season, Gostkowski has made all five of his field goal attempts and hit seven of eight extra points en rout to recording 22 points over the team's two postseason contests.

Bengals' Randy Bullock: Re-signs with Bengals
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(1/26/2017) Bullock was signed by the Bengals on Tuesday.

Bullock had an interesting 2016 season, taking kicks for the Bengals, Giants and Steelers, but ultimately wound up in Cincinnati for the season's last three games. He missed his only field goal attempt beyond 30 yards for the Bengals and did little to solidify himself as the team's kicker going forward. Consequently, Bullock could face competition for the starting gig in training camp, perhaps from second-year kicker Jonathan Brown, who missed most of his rookie season with a foot injury.

Packers' Mason Crosby: Remains consistent this season
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(1/23/2017) Crosby converted 26 of 30 field goal attempts and 44 of 47 extra point tries en route to 122 points during the 2016 regular season.

Crosby has now made at least 81 percent of his field goal attempts in four straight seasons since the disastrous 2012 campaign in which he converted merely 63.6 percent of the time. With the help of four double-digit scoring performances, Crosby finished tied for 14th league-wide in points, which came in spite of the Packers' offensive struggles during the middle of this season.

Steelers' Chris Boswell: Three points in blowout loss to Patriots
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(1/23/2017) Boswell made his lone field-goal (23 yards) and missed his only extra-point attempt in Pittsburgh's 36-17 AFC championship loss to New England.

Just one week removed from setting an NFL playoff record with six field-goals, Boswell was a non-factor, going the entire second half of the game without an opportunity to put points on the board.

Packers' Mason Crosby: Full practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(1/19/2017) Crosby (illness) practiced in full Thursday.

Absent from Wednesday's session due to an illness, Crosby's unhinged return one day later clears up any question regarding his availability for Sunday's NFC championship game at Atlanta. While he's been offered more than one field-goal attempt on four occasions during the Packers' four-game winning streak, he's attempted at least three PATs in each outing during that stretch.

49ers' Nick Rose: Signs with 49ers
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(1/19/2017) Rose signed a reserve/future contract with the 49ers on Thursday, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Rose, an undrafted rookie in 2016, failed to make a roster in 2016 but he'll have a chance to compete with Phil Dawson for the job in San Francisco in 2017.
