Today was another quiet day for the New York Jets, as one of the two players who were expected to visit them, S Brandon Merriweather, signed with the Washington Redskins and never made it to Florham Park. The other player was QB Drew Stanton, who did make it to the Jets training facility but did not receive an offer. He will have another meeting with the Jets tomorrow.
It was another quiet day for the New York Jets, as the Gang Green re-signed PK Nick Folk, who spent last two seasons with the team. Folk converted only 76% of his field goal attempts last season and the Jets intend to bring another kicker to training camp to compete with him.
Rookie DE Muhammad Wilkerson was fined $10K for his fight with Giants RB Brandon Jacobs during the teams' preseason game last month. Jacobs was hit with a $20K fine, as this wasn't his first offense. Both players were ejected after shoving at each other in the second half of the Jets' 17-3 win on Aug. 29. Wilkerson, 21, will start for the Jets in the season opener against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night.
