Jets Sign Dimke


The New York Jets signed Boylan grad and former University of Illinois kicker Derek Dimke.

He'll try to unseat Nick Folk, the current Jets kicker. Dimke was in Lions camp after going undrafted in 2012, but couldn't beat out veteran Jason Hanson for the job.

Dimke made his two field goal attempts in the preseason last year. He worked out for Miami and Cleveland before he worked out for the Jets.
