Veteran Kicker Nick Folk Excited About His New Opportunity with the Titans


NASHVILLE – New Titans kicker Nick Folk is in town, and he knows he has a job to do.

But first, he has some new faces to learn.

"I have enjoyed it for the short time I have been here so far," a smiling Folk said on Thursday, two days after being traded to the team. "It has been great. I think the fit has been really good. I've enjoyed the guys in the locker room so far. Right now I'm trying to get to know everyone's name – a lot of names to learn real quick, but it will be good."

The Titans traded a seventh-round pick in the 2025 NFL Draft to the New England Patriots for Folk, a veteran of 211 games over 15 NFL seasons with Dallas (2007-09), New York Jets (2010-2016), Tampa Bay (2017) and New England (2019-22).

On Thursday, the Titans also signed former Browns kicker Cade York to the team's practice squad.

Coach Mike Vrabel made it clear today it's Folk's job, and the team added York to develop him.

"Nick is our kicker," Vrabel said. "Nick is our kicker, and we feel really good about what he has done and what he will do. We just felt like it was a good opportunity to bring Cade in here to allow him to develop and work and see where he is at. … (But) Nick is our kicker."

Folk has proven to be a pretty good kicker over the years – he's connected on 83% (353-426) of his field goal attempts with 10 100-point seasons, including a league-leading 150 points in 2021 with the Patriots. Over his four years with New England, Folk made 89% of his field goal attempts and last year totaled 128 points on 32 of 37 field goal attempts.

Folk holds the NFL record for consecutive field goals made (64) under 50 yards. While with the Patriots, he also set the franchise mark for consecutive field goals made (36) during a streak that spanned from September 2020 – October 2021 and posted the third-highest field goal percentage for a season by a Patriot in 2020 (92.9%). Folk is responsible for 11 game-winning field goals over his regular season career and one in postseason play.

Folk said he's excited about joining the Titans after getting news of the trade earlier this week.

"I found out from Coach (Bill) Belichick," Folk said. "He called me, and we had a good conversation about it, and he said the Titans were interested. And then I talked to Coach Vrabel and they made it happen. I am excited about the opportunity and excited to be here.

"I just think overall, as an all-around kicker, I can play in all kinds of elements, weather, situations. I just think I have a well-rounded game that can play anywhere and am excited to be here and ready to get going."
