The New York Jets have placed the franchise tag on veteran kicker Nick Folk.

Folk hit three game-winning field goals last season.

He made a career-high 33 field goals, missing just three for the season.

Folk had a career-high 91.7 percent accuracy, including going 3 for 3 from beyond 50 yards.

He made all 27 of his extra points.

He broke the franchise record with 23 consecutive field goals.

The Jets hadn't used the franchise tag since 2011 when they tagged linebacker David Harris.
