Nick Folk was one of the heroes of the 2013 New York Jets.

That says something about the Jets, but it also speaks to Folk's consistency under pressure. On Friday, the Jets made sure Folk didn't leave town by placing the franchise tag on him.

The team announced the tag for Folk, noting his 91.7% accuracy on field goals in 2013. Folk hit his first 23 field goals last season, including three game-winners. Folk hit all three attempts over 50 yards and showed a knack for accuracy in tough conditions.
