Folk drilled all five of his field-goal attempts in Thursday's OTA, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran kicker has been lights out over this week's OTAs, as he'd also been perfect on four attempts through the much narrower 8.5-foot wide uprights that the Bucs utilized in Tuesday's session. NFL regulation goalposts were utilized Thursday, which seemed to help fellow kicker Roberto Aguayo as well.

Folk went 4-for-4 on field goals from approximately 35-40 yards out in Tuesday's OTA practice, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Both Folk and second-year incumbent Roberto Aguayo attempted four kicks apiece at the end of practice into 8.5-foot wide goal posts, which are a full 10 feet narrower than NFL regulation uprights. Notably, Aguayo made only 25 percent of his attempts while Folk was perfect. While it's only one practice in May, Aguayo likely doesn't have much room for error alongside a proven kicker like Folk, who made 87.1 percent of his 31 attempts in 2016 with the Jets and has an extensive NFL track record.

Folk will sign with the Buccaneers, Peter Schrager of FOX Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Folk put together a solid season in 2016 by converting 27 of 31 field goals and his numbers could have looked even better considering three of his four missed attempts were blocked. Meanwhile, Roberto Aguayo, who the Bucs traded up to select in the second round of last year's draft, was true on just 22 of 31 attempts in what ultimately was a disappointing campaign for a kicker selected so high. While it's fair to wonder whether the hefty expectations placed upon the rookie are to blame for his first-year struggles, Aguayo still failed to perform at a league-average level and could find himself dueling with Folk for the starting job in training camp this summer if he's unable to turn things around.

Folk was released by the Jets on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Folk was the Jets kicker for the past seven seasons. For his career he's converted 81.3 percent of his field goals, including 27 or 31 in 2016. It appears the Jets cut ties with Folk to free up some salary cap room, but it remains unclear who'll be their kicker in 2017. Folk is free to sign with any team.

Folk converted 27 of 31 field-goal attempts and 24 of 26 extra points during the 2016 season.

EDGE Analysis

Folk had a quietly-solid season for the Jets in 2016. However, given how he did in fact play for the Jets, you never knew what to expect from him on a weekly basis, rendering him unserviceable in most formats. Case in point, look at his numbers from Week 9 and Week 10. In Week 9 against the Dolphins, Folk made three field goals and three extra points only to come back with a clunker (thanks to a missed PAT) the game after. With the team's quarterback situation far from solved, expect more uncertainty out of Folk in 2017.

Folk connected on one of two field-goal attempts, both from 50+ yards, and hit both of his PATs during Sunday's loss to the Patriots.

EDGE Analysis

Folk was successful on a 51-yard attempt to open the scoring in the first quarter, but his 54-yarder with just over two minutes left in the first half was blocked. Folk has now had one or zero successful field goals in five of his last six games, and with the struggles of the Jets' offense overall, he's hardly a high upside fantasy kicking option.

Folk was not given a field-goal attempt and missed his only PAT during Sunday's 9-7 loss to the Rams.

EDGE Analysis

The Jets' offense really struggled to move the ball Sunday with Bryce Petty under center, though they hadn't been doing much before then anyway, as Folk had connected on more than one field goal just twice since Week 2. Fantasy owners who are stuck with Folk will have to look for an alternative in Week 11 during the Jets' bye before they take on the Patriots in Week 12.

Folk connected on all three of his field-goal attempts (23, 21 and 28 yards) and both of his PATs in Sunday's loss to the Dolphins.

EDGE Analysis

Folk's three field-goal attempts were the most he's had in a game since Week 2 against Buffalo, and with the Jets' offense continuing to struggle, there's little reason for optimism that he'll get many more opportunities in Week 10 against the Rams.

Folk connected on a 39-yard field goal, his only attempt of the game, during Monday's loss to the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

The Jets' offense has really struggled to move the ball over the past few weeks, leaving Folk with multiple field-goal attempts just once in the last four games. Given their inability to get him into field-goal range, Folk is a fairly weak fantasy option in most formats.

Folk converted two field-goal attempts and his lone PAT in the Jets' 31-13 loss to the Steelers on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Folk's production has waned since nailing three field goals in each of the season's first two games, but he simply hasn't seen many field-goal attempts with the Jets' offense struggling as of late. However, he still ranks amongst the top-10 kickers in field goal makes this year and has already displayed a high fantasy ceiling on two separate occasions, making Folk a serviceable option in nearly all formats.
