Scouting Jets kicker Sam Ficken

Photo by Brett Carlsen/ Over past year or so, we’ve been providing an in-depth scouting report for every player added to the Jets roster. The lone exception from the players still on the roster is kicker Sam Ficken, who joined the Jets after week one last year and remained with the team throughout the season. Let’s assess his chances of retaining his job. Background Ficken was a soccer player in high school, but also started placekicking for the football team and was an all-state selection in his senior year.
