Punter Ken Parrish has been signed after a tryout Sunday morning.
Clearly, Rex Ryan is not happy with the punting game. Reggie Hodges appeared to do well against St. Louis, but not well enough.
"I'm tired of seeing ground balls hit," Ryan said. "We've got to do better than that. Our guys know that so we'll see. You watch some practices and you're like, 'Man we've got Ray Guy here.' I want to see that. I want to see an NFL punt. Reggie's numbers look good, but I don't think those are exactly rockets that he hit.
"We're going to find a punter. If he's here or if he's on somebody else's team, we've got to find a punter. I don't care where we go to get one. If he's here [that's] great, then step up and punt. If he's not, then we'll go find one."
Say this for Ryan, he does not screw around. Paul Raymond drops a punt, he's gone. He's not happy with the punting game, he brings someone new in. Mike Westhoff liked T.J. Conley earlier in training camp, but he is gone after just one game.
Parrish, by the way, is 6'1" 210 pounds from East Stroudsburg University.
The Jets also signed two more players, LB Joshua Mauga from the University of Nevada, and WR Huey Whittaker, who had been released Wednesday to make room for K Parker Douglass.
TE J'Nathan Bullock, yes, the former Cleveland State basketball player, was also released. That's no surprise, considering he really hadn't done much to distinguish himself from the other tight ends, and without playing football in high school, he couldn't be the blocking tight end the Jets sorely needed.
