The Seattle Seahawks are expected to sign free-agent kicker Jason Myers to an undisclosed deal after his Pro Bowl season with the Jets in 2018, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Myers made 33 of his 36 field-goal tries, including an NFL-record five field goals of 55 yards or more. The 27-year-old will be Seattle's new kicker, replacing veteran Sebastian Janikowski.
New York Jets kicker Jason Myers was basically the only reason that the Jets had a chance during the Week 13 loss to the Titans. Myers knocked down five field goals and totaled 16 of the Jets 22 points. He knocked down a 54 yard field goal and was a perfect 5-for-5 during the 26-22 loss. The Jets offense doesn't seem to be able to score touchdowns, so Myers is seeing plenty of work. Myers is a sleeper kicker option as the fantasy playoffs approach.
New York Jets placekicker Jason Myers edged out Taylor Bertolet for the starting job in the preseason, but it's uncertain if he'll open the season in that capacity. The team is working out former Dallas Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey on Monday, and it's hard to envision the club retaining a middle of the road kicker when they could sign the second-most accurate kicker in league history, albeit at a higher price tag. Even Bailey leaves the training facility without a deal on Monday, Myers might keep the job. However, he is still nothing more than a streaming option in deeper fantasy leagues for when bye weeks hit.
