Patriots Release K Nick Folk, Sign K Kai Forbath

     

The New England Patriots announced Friday that they’ve officially released K Nick Folk and signed K Kai Forbath to their active roster.

In 2019, Folk has appeared in three games for the Patriots and converted 7 of 9 field goal attempts (77.8 percent) to go along with all three extra point tries.

Forbath, 32, originally signed on with the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent out of back in 2011. Forbath had brief stints with the Buccaneers, Redskins, Saints and Vikings before signing on with the Jaguars last December. 

Jacksonville released Forbath back in February.
