Alex Kessman: Time in Big Apple ends
New York waived Kessman on Monday, Ethan Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.
Signed by the Jets last week to replace struggling rookie kicker Matt Ammendola, Kessman's dismissal comes as little surprise after he missed both of his two extra-point attempts in the first half of Sunday's loss to the Eagles. The Jets decided to forgo the point-after try on their next touchdown, leaving Kessman without another chance to redeem himself. Eddy Pineiro was signed in a corresponding move and will take over as the Jets' kicker beginning with the team's Week 14 game against the Saints.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Alex Kessman: NFL stint might be short-lived
Kessman didn't attempt a field goal and missed both of his PAT attempts in Sunday's 33-18 loss to Philadelphia.
Kessman's NFL debut couldn't have been much worse, and it wouldn't be surprising to see the Jets move on from him after just one game. His inaccuracy put a damper on the Jets' hot start offensively, as New York scored touchdowns on each of its first two drives, only to watch Kessman miss the ensuing PAT both times. The Jets didn't give him another opportunity, going for two after their third touchdown and opting not to attempt a field goal in the game.... See More ... See Less
Jets' Alex Kessman: Taking over as Jets' kicker
The Jets signed Kessman to their 53-man roster Saturday.
Kessman will take over kicking duties from Matt Ammendola, who was waived after converting just 13 of his 19 field-goal attempts this season, including 0-for-3 from 50-plus yards. The Jets have attempted the 11th-fewest kicks and the third-fewest extra-point attempts this season, so even if Kessman provides more stability at the position, he likely won't make for a serviceable fantasy option....

Kessman has signed with the Chargers.
Kessman will compete with Michael Badgley and Tristan Vizcaino for the kicking job in Los Angeles. Even if he loses the competition, the undrafted rookie out of Pittsburgh could put himself on the map for kicker-needy teams if he performs well in camp and preseason.... See More ... See Less
