One of the NFL's premier directional and hang-time punters, the 13-year veteran will replace Matt Turk, who was recently released. Stryzinski was
also released last month by Kansas City.
Stryzinski for years has been a highly productive punter, by using hang time and direction to stymie the efforts of punt return specialists. He typically pins a returner against the sideline and helps to ease the job of the coverage units.
Seven times in his 13-year career, Stryzinski has limited return men to less
than 200 yards in a season, and on eight occasions he led the NFL in forcing
fair catches. Opposition returners have averaged just 7.2 yards per runback
during his NFL tenure.
Stryzinski has nearly four times as many punts inside the 20-yard line as he
does touchbacks (271-73) and he has a 40.1-yard gross average and net
average of 35.8 yards.
The Jets will be his fifth different team after having played with the
Pittsburgh Steelers(1990-91), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1992-94), Atlanta
Falcons (1995-2000) and Kansas City Chiefs (2001-2002).
