The Jets signed former Cowboys kicker Nick Folk today, but that doesn't mean Jay Feely wants out of New York.

Feely said today he still holds out hope that he'll be back with the Jets. He is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent on March 5.

"I wish we could have gotten a deal finished, and may still, but the Jets are being prudent," Feely said of the team's decision to sign Folk to a one-year deal. "All conversations have been very positive about my performance and leadership." 

Feely was 30-of-36 during the regular season, and was 3-of-5 in the playoffs. He missed two attempts in the Jets' AFC Championship Game loss to the Colts.

"I have never enjoyed playing for a team, an organization a  head coach or a fan base more than the Jets," Feely said. "So I hope to be back."
