The NFL Network first reported the Seibert signing. He was one of three kickers who worked out for the Jets on Friday.
Zuerlein, 35, enjoyed a strong preseason, as he converted nine of 10 field goal attempts. The Jets don’t see this as a long-term injury, according to coach Robert Saleh, so Seibert might be a one-game rental.
Seibert, 26, originally a fifth-round pick of the Cleveland Browns in 2019, has made 44 of 55 field goals and 55 of 61 extra points in his career. He last appeared in a game last season for the Detroit Lions. Seibert was waived by the Lions on Oct. 7.
