Veteran Place Kicker Wanted - Why not Nick Folk?

He's played in our stadium the last seven years and scored more points in Met-Life Stadium than anyone in history.

Nice strong leg, made some huge kicks over the years and can kick in the cold. Who knows the cross-winds of the Jersey swamp better than this guy?

Not sure what free agent kickers are costing these days and I know Reese's purse-strings are tight but Folk would be a nice addition...
Folk would be a solid option IMO

Let him compete with Rosas and let the best man win. Hopefully the Giants will stick with the young kid this time if he outperforms the veteran. The Giants made a mistake letting Chris Boswell go.

I was wondering

about the K situation, so I'll half-way Miller...

Do we need to take one in the draft? If no "need" necessarily, should we? Is there an out-and-out kickass K who would be worth a pick?

All that said, yeah, if he's any good and not 80 years old, Folk would be worth a try.

Mike - that was an excellent blog reference. I think the numbers get skewered a bit because he kicks outdoors but those numbers provide good perspective of where he fits in compared to other kickers.
