Novak has NFL experience, was the UFL's special teams player of the year and was coveted by several NFL teams last season. But his movement was hindered by his UFL contract.
Novak, who went 15 of 18 on field-goal attempts, making a long of 54 yards, appeared in regular-season games for three NFL teams -- the Washington Redskins (twice), Kansas City Chiefs and Arizona Cardinals -- from 2005-08.
Folk was 30-for-39 on field-goal attempts with a long of 56 yards.
It is not unusual for teams to sign additional kickers, usually journeymen, during the offseason who could eventually compete with the incumbent.
