Nebraska Huskers: Brett Maher Signs With The New York Jets

The undrafted kicker gets inked with a NFL squad.

Justin K. Aller

Well, with the Alex Lewis news from Sunday morning, you needed good news this afternoon. I am here to bring it to you right now!

Maher, who was undrafted in the 2014 NFL Draft, was in New York for a tryout camp this weekend. The Jets had signed Nick Folk in March and had also added Derek Dimke in April, obviously setting up a nice training camp battle we will be watching closely.

Also, this is a friendly reminder about the "Rex Ryan Foot Fetish". Hey, that's just another reason he'll love Brett.

Maher, who hails from Kearney, was 20 for 27 in field goals and 49 for 50 on extra points in the 2013 campaign for a 109 point total. In 2012, he wasn't even named a Lou Groza finalist, yet was the B1G kicker of the year.
