The Jets are cutting Bertolet, who was replaced by Kaare Vedvik on Sunday, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.
Bertolet botched three field-goal attempts and two extra-point tries during the preseason, missing out on an opportunity to lock down the kicker job after Chandler Catanzaro's unexpected retirement. Vedvik will handle the job Week 1 against Buffalo.
Bertolet converted both of his field-goal attempts -- from 48 and 56 yards -- along with his lone PAT try in Saturday's 28-13 preseason loss to the Saints.
Bertolet's excellent performance has him on pace to lock down the Jets' kicking job, as he's given the team little reason to bring in outside competition.
Bertolet converted one of three extra-point attempts and made his lone field-goal attempt in Thursday's preseason game in Atlanta.
Bertolet signed with the Jets on Sunday after Chandler Catanzaro suddenly retired following the preseason opener, but the change in kickers didn't yield improved results. Bertolet is currently the lone kicker on the roster and therefore remains the favorite for the starting job, and according to Brian Costello of the New York Post, coach Adam Gase said, "Right now this is where we're at. This is who we're going with." It's not exactly a major vote of confidence, so the team seems likely to continue searching for outside candidates, especially if the 26-year-old continues to struggle.
Bertolet signed a contract with the Jets on Sunday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Bertolet was picked up by the Jets after Chandler Catanzaro unexpectedly retired after the first preseason game. Bertolet currently is the only kicker on the Jets roster and, barring the team bringing in further competition, could hold some fantasy value entering the regular season.
The Broncos have waived Bertolet.
In a corresponding move, the Broncos signed punter Justin Vogel. In the wake of letting Bertolet go, Brandon McManus is now the team's only placekicker.
Bertolet signed a contract with the Broncos on Monday, freelance NFL writer Howard Balzer reports.
Bertolet spent the preseason with the Jets last year but ended up losing the kicking job to Jason Meyers, and eventually kicked for the Salt Lake Stallions in the now-defunct AAF. The 26-year-old has not seen regular-season NFL action since going undrafted out of Texas A&M in 2016.
Bertolet was waived by the Jets on Saturday, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.
Jason Myers beat out Bertolet for the kicker job after converting a 58-yard field goal in the preseason finale. It's been awhile since a Jets kicker deserved fantasy consideration as anything more than a bye-week replacement.
Bertolet is now competing with Jason Myers for the kicking job, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.
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.
Bertolet connected on both of his field-goal attempts and an extra point in Thursday's 15-13 preseason loss to the Redskins.
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 drill all of his kicks.
Bertolet will handle all of the Jets placekicking duties while Cairo Santos (groin) remains sidelined, Rich Cimini of ESPN reports.
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.
Bertolet signed with the Jets on Monday.
Bertolet was recently waived by the Broncos a week ago after spending just over a month with the franchise. The Jets are expected to move forward with Cairo Santos as their No. 1 kicker, but Bertolet will serve as competition along with Nick Rose this offseason.
Bertolet was waived by Denver on Monday, Aric DiLalla of the team's official site reports.
Bertolet was brought in just one month ago, but it seems as though the Broncos are content with Brandon McManus at the moment. Look for another organization to invite Bertolet to training camp.
Bertolet agreed to a contract Wednesday with the Broncos, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Bertolet signed with the Rams as an undrafted free agent in 2016, but was unable to unseat incumbent Greg Zuerlein for the kicking job. After a year out of football, Bertolet will get another chance to compete for a job in Denver, though it seems rather unlikely that he'll be able to beat out Brandon McManus.
