After holding workouts on Tuesday, the Jets are signing Sam Ficken, SNY's Ralph Vacchiano confirmed.
According to Vacchiano, the Jets also worked out Elliott Fry and Younghoe Koo. According to The Daily News' Manish Mehta, Tristan Vizcaino and Greg Joseph also tried out.
One source told Vacchiano that Ficken was the most impressive in the group.
Ficken, a Penn State grad, has four games of NFL experience under his belt with the Rams in 2017 and 2018. He is 3-for-6 over his career with all three of his field goals made under 40 yards. His one attempt over that in 2018 was a miss.
The most experienced out of the five was Joseph, who played in 14 games with the Browns last season. He knocked in 17-of-20 attempts including 5-for-7 from 40 yards and beyond. He also knocked in a 51-yarder, while going 25-for-29 for extra points, too.
Fry was a Bears roster cut after Eddy Pineiro won the job out in Chicago. He has yet to see NFL game action, coming out of South Carolina last season. Koo was part of the Chargers in 2017, where he went 3-for-6 as well. He did knock in all nine of his extra point attempts, though. And as for Vizcaino, he has yet to see game action.
Last season, the Jets had a Pro Bowl kicker in Jason Myers providing consistency when he was called upon to add some points to the scoreboard.
This season has been the exact opposite since he's been gone.
The Jets have been through two kickers already in Chandler Catanzaro and Taylor Bertolet during the preseason, and Kaare Vedvik -- the team's pickup before Week 1 -- dropped the ball on Sunday against the Bills.
Vedvik, whom the Jets wanted to trade for with the Ravens this preseason before the Vikings stepped in, missed an extra point left and a 45-yard field goal attempt right in the two times he was sent out to kick. Those four points ultimately saw the Jets fall to the Bills 17-16 in a crushing home loss.
