Jets Sign K Sam Ficken


According to Ian Rapoport, the Jets are expected to sign K Sam Ficken on Tuesday. 

New York worked Ficken out earlier today as it seeks to shore up its kicking position. 

Ficken, 26, wound up signing on with the Jaguars in 2016 as an undrafted free agent out of Penn State. He lasted just over a month in Jacksonville before he was waived during the first round of roster cuts.

After a brief stint with the Chiefs, Ficken joined the Rams towards the end of 2018 after Greg Zuerlein suffered a season-ending injury. Los Angeles brought Ficken back on an exclusive rights contract, but he was waived coming out of the preseason.

The Seahawks signed Ficken to a futures contract back in January before placing him on waivers. Green Bay claimed Ficken and he ended up losing a competition with Mason Crosby for the starting job and was cut again.  

In 2018, Ficken appeared in two games for the Rams and converted 1 of 3 field goal attempts and all 10 of his extra point tries.
