Billy Cundiff signs one-year contract with New York Jets

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- In search of competition for Nick Folk in training camp, the New York Jets signed Billy Cundiff to a one-year contract Tuesday.

Cundiff had a workout with the Jets on Monday. He most recently was with the San Francisco 49ers, who signed him during the playoffs in January to compete with a struggling David Akers (Cundiff never played for the Niners).

The Jets are the 12th organization Cundiff has been with since being signed as an undrafted free agent by the Dallas Cowboys in 2002. A Pro Bowl selection in 2010 with the Baltimore Ravens, Cundiff is perhaps best known for missing a game-tying, 32-yard attempt in the closing seconds against the New England Patriots in the 2012 AFC Championship Game.

Jets veterans report to training camp Thursday in Cortland, N.Y. The Jets also released kicker Brett Maher.
