Matt Turk HOU Dec 06 '11

Texans signed P Matt Turk.

Brett Hartmann, Turk's successor in Houston this season, tore his ACL in last week's game. Turk was brutal in five games with the Jags early in the season, but the Texans staff has a familiarity level with the 43-year-old.

Jaguars released P Matt Turk.

They'll bite the bullet after guaranteeing him $600,000 this offseason. Turk had been among the worst punters in the league, averaging just 32.8 net yards through five weeks. His Week 5 performance against the Bengals was the final straw, leaving coach Jack Del Rio fuming. At age 43, Turk's career could be over.

The Jaguars are bringing in punters after Matt Turk's brutal performance in last Sunday's loss to the Bengals.

Coach Jack Del Rio threw Turk under the bus Monday. "When you have seven punts on the day and [only] one of them is good, that's not going to work for you. That's what we had [Sunday]," Del Rio said. Turk, a 43-year-old veteran, blamed windy conditions for his poor play. Free agents Nick Harris and Matt Dodge are candidates to replace him.

Jaguars agreed to terms with P Matt Turk, formerly of the Texans.

Jacksonville takes a big step down from Adam Podlesh, who left for big bucks in Chicago. Podlesh is 28 years old and finished tied for fourth in the league in net punting average last season. Turk is 43 years old and ranked 21st.

The Texans are not expected to try to re-sign free agent P Matt Turk.

Turk ranked 25th in gross average and 21st in net last season. The 43-year-old may have to settle for an in-season contract if he has designs on punting this year. The Texans are expected to sign a new starting punter in free agency.
