The Titans are keeping veteran kicker Nick Folk after franchise-record season

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans are re-signing veteran kicker Nick Folk after he made an NFL-leading, career-best 96.7% of his kicks last season.

The Titans announced Wednesday they agreed to terms with Folk and defensive lineman Sebastian Joseph.

Tennessee traded a 2025 seventh-round draft pick to New England last August for Folk just before NFL’s roster cut deadline after trying a pair of undrafted free agents to fill its need for a kicker.

Folk, 39, played in all 17 games last season and made 29 of 30 field goals. His percentage tied for the 14th-best mark for a single season in NFL history and set a franchise record, topping the mark of 92.3% held by Al Del Greco (1998) and Rob Bironas (2010).

The 16-year veteran also has made an NFL-record 78 consecutive field goals under 40 yards, a streak he started in 2017. Folk ranks fourth among active kickers with 382 career field goals, trailing Matt Prater (401), Mason Crosby (400) and Justin Tucker (395).

Folk ranks 10th with 228 career games among all NFL players active through the 2023 season. He also has played with Dallas, the Jets and Tampa Bay.

Joseph, formerly known as Joseph-Day, has started 68 of 71 games in his five seasons in the NFL. He was a sixth-round pick by the Rams, for whom he made his NFL debut in the 2019 season and was with them through 2021.

He played for the Chargers in 2022 and 2023, then played two games for San Francisco late last season. The 6-foot-4, 310-pound lineman has 11 career sacks, 21 tackles for loss, two forced fumbles, a recovered fumble and an interception.
