NEW YORK (AP) -The New York Jets have placed the franchise tag on kicker Nick Folk, who is coming off perhaps the best season of his seven-year NFL career.

The Jets announced the move Friday. Teams have until Monday to designate a player for the franchise tag.

Folk made $780,000 last season, but the franchise tag estimate for kickers is about $3.4 million for this season. Folk was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent and by using the tag, the Jets could potentially set things up for a multiyear deal.

In his fourth season with the Jets, Folk made 33 of 36 field-goal attempts, including three winning kicks. He broke the franchise records for most consecutive field goals from the start of a season (23) and most consecutive home field goals (20).
