New York Jets kicker Chandler Catanzaro retires after a noisy start to training camp
The team announced Catanzaro’s decision on Sunday. Jets kicker Taylor Bertolet also signed with the Jets to replace Catanzaro on the roster.
28-year-old Catanzaro signed with New York during the offseason for a second stint with the team. He had a poor start in training camp and then missed two extra points in the Jets’ 3122 preseason-opening loss to the Giants on Thursday night.
Catanzaro spent his first three NFL seasons with Arizona before joining New York in 2017. He played for Tampa Bay and Carolina last year.
Bertolet was impressive while with the Jets last summer before the team decided to go with veteran Jason Myers, who was selected in the Pro Bowl last season. Bertolet last kicked for the Salt Lake Stallions of the Alliance of American Football.
