The Jets announced on Tuesday they have waived K Kaare Vedvik following the signing of K Sam Ficken.
Vedvik missed a field goal and an extra point during Sunday’s 17-16 loss to the Bills, so this move doesn’t come as a surprise.
Vedvik, 25, wound up signing on with the Ravens as an undrafted free agent out of Marshall back in May of 2018. He agreed to a three-year, $1.71 million contract and stands to make a base salary of $570,000 for the 2019 season.
The Ravens traded Vedvik to the Vikings for a fifth-round pick a few weeks ago, but he was cut loose after only a few weeks. New York claimed Vedvik off of waivers.
During his college career at Marshall, Vedvik converted 10 of 16 field goal attempts (62.5 percent) to go along with 41 of 42 extra point tries (97.6 percent) over the course of 26 games.
