After leading the league in 2009 with 10 missed field goal attempts at the three-quarter mark, Dallas' star kicker [p2p postID=”3031″ text=”Nick Folk was cut in search of consistency on the three-point-tries”].
Dallas went on to sign Shaun Suisham who has flopped so far and Folk went to the unemployment lines.
Some of us Dallas fans struggled with the decision to release Folk. Some said he still hadn't gotten right after his preseason hip surgery and others simply maintained that he needed time to work through a tough spell in his young career.

As of today, though, the clock starts ticking down to the moment when we'll all know if Folk was a two-year man or just in need of some refocusing.
According to Mike Florio at ProFootballTalk.com, Nick Folk is headed to New York for tryouts with both the New York Jets and New York Giants.

Apparently few have forgotten what Folk has done when at his best and seem to be willing to give him a shot. We'll have to keep an eye out to see what happens.
