The Jets announced the previously reported signing of Donte Moncrief on Monday morning and they also announced the release of kicker Brett Maher.
Maher signed a future contract with the Jets after the end of the 2019 regular season and joined Sam Ficken as the team’s options at kicker. Ficken spent most of last season in that role and is now set to open this season in the same role.
The Jets are banged up at WR and thus the signing of Moncrief. But, the move means the kicking job now belongs to Ficken.
