The Facts: The team announced that Nick Folk has been placed on injured reserve and that they signed Bullock to take over the kicking duties.
Diehards Line: Bullock, who tried out for the team on Monday along with several other kickers, has been out of work since being dropped by the Texans late in September. Bullock was released after missing two kicks against the Buccaneers in Week Three and also missed an extra point in the season opener. He spent the previous two seasons with Houston and has made 80.3 percent of his field goals overall. Folk, who injured a quad last Sunday, is signed through 2017 and was having a good season, so he’ll likely be back with the Jets come 2016.
