Myers missed a PAT but converted field goals of 55 and 41 yards in Sunday's 20-12 loss to the Dolphins.
All of Myers' kicks came after halftime, as the Jets were shut out in the first half. He converted all six of his extra-point attempts last week after struggling on them last season, so Myers continues to be an enigma who seems to struggle more with gimmes than long-distance kicks.
Myers converted a 58-yard field goal in the preseason finale nine days after signing with the Jets. It was enough to beat out Taylor Bertolet, who received his pink slip Saturday morning. Given his team context, Myers belongs on the waiver wire in the vast majority of fantasy leagues.
Myers converted both of his field-goal attempts during Thursday's preseason finale against the Eagles.
Myers made a strong case to be the Jets' kicker in 2018, first connecting on a 58-yarder in the first quarter before following up with a 43-yard strike in the third. His competition at the moment, Taylor Bertolet, was only given one chance on the evening, which was a successful 19-yard attempt. While only time will tell who wins out, the smart money seems to be on Myers to make this team.
Myers made a 43-yard field goal in Thursday's 19-17 preseason loss to the Colts.
Myers has the tough task of battling Sebastian Janikowski for the starting kicker position. Janikowski was given a $600,000 signing bonus while Myers' base salary is $705,000, so the cards are stacked against Myers versus the seasoned veteran.
Myers kicked field goals with the backup units throughout minicamp, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
It was clear that snagging a starting gig wouldn't be easy for Myers after the Seahawks pegged a $600,000 signing bonus onto veteran kicker Sebastian Janikowski's one-year deal. That sum of cash rivals Myers entire contract -- $705,000 for one season. Therefore, Myers has so much more to prove than Janikowski, and this battle looks to drag out through preseason.
