Folk, coming off perhaps the best season of his seven-year NFL career, was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent. Folk had said late last season he believed he had earned a potential long-term deal after making 33 of 36 field-goal attempts, including three winning kicks. He also broke the franchise records for most consecutive field goals from the start of a season (23) and most consecutive home field goals (20). Folk also had a career-high 30 touchbacks on his kickoffs.
Folk is 11 for 11 on field-goal attempts this season, including 6 for 6 from 40-49 yards out.
Carpenter, cut by Arizona, was signed by the Jets Tuesday to compete with Folk, who beat out Billy Cundiff earlier in training camp.
