Jets sign kicker Jared Ballman Dan Leberfeld

On Friday, the Jets signed former University of Washington kicker/punter Jared Ballman.

They need another camp leg so they don’t wear out Nick Folk, and Ballman canĀ fill this role.

He can also canĀ give the punters a break. He was a punter at Washington as well.

In mini-camp practice on Monday, Ballman showed good ability as a kickoff guy.
