It isn't the most-watched competition, but the kicking position hasn't had any competition at Jets camp.
Taylor Bertolet has been headlining the position recently, with Cairo Santos -- a free-agent signee -- dealing with a chronic groin injury, reports ESPN's Rich Cimini.
Santos needed surgery to repair the groin after a tumultuous 2017 season. He missed most of training camp with the Chiefs to start, and they eventually cut him after aggravating the injury in Week 3. Santos, then, signed with the Bears, but a reaggravation landed him on the IR for the rest of the season.
Now, he finds himself with the Jets, and is still rehabbing the groin. He was spotted kicking at the start of camp, but lately that hasn't been the case. However, Santos isn't worried that he won't be able to compete this season, saying this is "a normal process, just getting used to new tissue."
Though he may be hopeful, Santos says "it's a challenging time" that he can't be on the field with his teammates. The Jets and Santos don't have a timeframe as to when the 26-year-old will be back on the field.
Santos' last full season was in 2016, where he went 31-for-35 (88.6 percent) and hit 6-of-7 field goals from 40-49 yards. He only managed five games total last year.
