Ex-Jets K Chandler Catanzaro signs a 1-year deal with Buccaneers

Other than missing out on Kirk Cousins, the Jets' free-agency period was going pretty well, until now.

Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reported Wednesday the two sides agreed to terms on a deal, and Ian Rapoport of NFL.com noted the contract is for three years and $10.5 million with $4 million of it guaranteed.

Catanzaro, 27, went 25-for-30 on field goals for the Jets last season and was a ideal 29-for-29 on extra points.

Catanzaro made his first 17 field goals to start his National Football League career in 2014; he also missed a 24-yarder in what ended up a 6-6 tie with Seattle in 2016, leading the Cardinals to go in another direction. He also made 12 of 17 field goals from 40 to 49 yards, with the 17 attempts from that range a career high.

The Jets are now in the market for a new kicker.

Catanzaro had expressed a desire to return, and the Jets said they wanted him to, but it apparently isn't going to happen.

Watkins started covering the Cowboys in 2006 and after a three-year stint covering the Rockets for ESPN is now back on an National Football League beat covering the Jets.
