Pro Bowl kicker Jason Myers is leaving the New York Jets and is expected to sign with the Seattle Seahawks, a source told ESPN’s Dianna Russini.
The deal is for four years and worth $15-16 million, according to the source.
Myers enjoyed a storybook season in 2018. It started with him getting cut and ended with a trip to the Pro Bowl. He was a bargain for the Jets, as he made only $705,000 on a one-year contract.
The Jets claimed Myers on waivers in the preseason after he lost a kicking competition with the Seahawks, who opted to keep Sebastian Janikowski. The Jets auditioned a few free agents, including the respected Dan Bailey, but they decided to keep Myers.
