The Jets were awarded kicker Nick Rose on Monday after the Los Angeles Chargers placed him on waivers, the team announced.
Rose made 11 of 14 field goals in 10 games with the Chargers and Washington Redskins last season and converted on 23 of 26 extra points. He went 1-for-3 as a member of the Chargers in Weeks 16 and 17, and 10-for-11 in eight games with Washington. His longest make last year was 55 yards.
New York signed Cairo Santos to a one-year, $2 million deal earlier in the offseason after losing Chandler Catanzaro to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on a three-year, $9.75 million deal.
The 23-year-old Rose is entering his second professional season after playing at the University of Texas.
