While terms of the deal have not yet been revealed, the New York Post is reporting that Chiefs free agent punter Dan Stryzinski has agreed to terms. The Jets had cut P Matt Turk previously due to a large contract and expectations that weren't reached.
Stryzinski, 38 years old, is listed at 6'2", 205 lbs., and has punted for the Chiefs, Falcons, Bucs and Steelers in his 14 year career. He ranks dead last amongst AFC punters with a gross punt avg. of 37.8 yards per punt and a net avg. of only 31.2 yards per punt. The 37.8 gross avg. is only better than Matt Allen of the Giants in the entire NFL for the 2002 season with a minimum of 50 punts. The 31.2 net avg. is the worst in the NFL with a minimum of 50 punts.
It should be noted that Stryzinski has punted in the Meadowlands recently. In the October 6th Jets/Chiefs game last season, he had 2 punts totalling 53 yards with 1 punt inside the 20 yard line. With a long punt that game of 37 yards and an average of 26.5 yards, he certainly hopes the new artificial turf provides better footing.
