Taylor Bertolet: Heading to Denver

Bertolet signed a contract with the Broncos on Monday, freelance NFL writer Howard Balzer reports.

Analysis: Bertolet spent the preseason with the Jets last year but ended up losing the kicking job to Jason Meyers, and eventually kicked for Salt Lake Stallions in the now-defunct AAF. The 26-year-old has not seen regular-season action since going undrafted out of Texas A&M in 2016.

Taylor Bertolet: Waived by Jets

Bertolet was waived by the Jets on Saturday, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

Analysis: Jason Myers beat out Bertolet for the kicker job after converting a 58-yard field goal in the preseason finale. It's been a while since a Jets kicker deserved fantasy consideration as anything more than a bye-week replacement.

Taylor Bertolet: Competing with Myers

Bertolet is now competing with Jason Myers for the kicking job, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

Analysis: With Cairo Santos (groin) unable to stay healthy, the Jets put in a waiver claim on Myers, who was let go by the Seahawks on Monday. Bertolet should have the advantage, considering he's made all three of his field-goal attempts and all three of his PATs during the preseason. It's hard to imagine a Jets kicker warranting roster consideration as anything more than a bye-week replacement this year.

Taylor Bertolet: Makes two short field goals

Bertolet connected on both of his field-goal attempts and an extra point in Thursday's 15-13 preseason loss to the Redskins.

Analysis: Bertolet's long in this one was 36 yards, so he hasn't showcased anything special. Cairo Santos (groin) should take back the starting job once he's healthy, but Bertolet could make a name for himself if he continues to make all of his kicks.

Taylor Bertolet: Slated for kicking duties during preseason

Bertolet will handle all of the Jets placekicking duties while Cairo Santos (groin) remains sidelined, Rich Cimini of ESPN reports.

Analysis: A rookie out of Texas A&M, Bertolet would likely require a strong training camp to unseat Santos for the starting gig. He will be afforded an opportunity to do so with Santos sidelined and connected on his only field-goal attempt during the first preseason tilt.
