According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, the Jets brought in several experienced names, including Younghoe Koo and Greg Joseph to compete for the job. Now, another player will get a chance to lock down the position.

The former Penn State standout and National Football League journeyman has bounced around many teams throughout his professional career, including the Los Angeles Rams, Seattle Seahawks, and Green Bay Packers. He was most recently with the #Packers. He successfully converted 54 out of his 75 field goal attempts and more than 97 percent of his extra points with the Nittany Lions throughout his four-year career.

Britain to resume two-year working visa for foreign graduates
Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Wednesday that the new changes will help students improve their career in Britain. It aims to extend it to 60,000 over next 10 years, as per a report.

Ficken's arrival will likely lead to the release of Kaare Vedvik.

Ficken now becomes the fourth kicker the Jets have had since the departure of 2018 Pro Bowler Jason Myers. Chandler Catanzaro struggled in August before abruptly retiring and Taylor Bertolet wasn't much better. However, they clearly have run out of patience with him as well.

Back to beginning of MNF on September 21, 1970, only that one was Jets-Browns in Cleveland and it was Howard Cosell, Dandy Don and Keith Jackson in the TV booth for Browns' historic 31-21 win.
