Not surprisingly, the Jets waived kicker Kaare Vedvik and signed free agent Sam Ficken, who was cut recently by the Green Bay Packers. He will be their fourth kicker since the start of training camp.
Vedvik lasted only a week on the roster. He struggled in his NFL debut, missing an extra point and a 45-yard field goal. He replaced the ineffective Taylor Bertolet, who replaced Chandler Catanzaro, who retired abruptly after the second preseason game.
