Jets Release Maher

Posted by: Matt Lothrop

The New York Jets released former Nebraska kicker Brett Maher on Tuesday. Expected to push for a spot on the 5-3man roster, the Jets cut ties with Maher the same day they sign NFL veteran Billy Cundiff.

Maher was twice named the Big Ten Kicker of the Year. He went 20-for-27 on field goal attempts during his final season as a Husker.
