The Jets announced Saturday that they have re-signed unrestricted free agent kicker Nick Folk.

Folk has spent the last three seasons with the Jets after joining the team as a free agent in February 2010. He was originally drafted by the Cowboys in the sixth round of the 2007 NFL draft, spending three years with the club before being waived in December 2009.

In six career seasons, Folk has appeared in 94 games and has converted 134-of-172 field goal attempts (77.9%) and all 242 PAT tries. In 2012, Folk kicked in 16 games and hit 21-of-27 field goals (77.8%) and all 30 of his PAT attempts.

The Jets also officially announced the signings of free agents, offensive lineman Willie Colon and nose tackle Antonio Garay.
