The Arizona Wildcats don’t have many active players in the NFL, but their small number just increased by one.

The New England Patriots have signed former UA kicker Nick Folk, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport:

Folk, 34, last appeared in an NFL game in 2017 when he played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He entered the league with the Dallas Cowboys, who took him in the sixth round of the 2007 NFL Draft, playing three seasons for Dallas, then spent 2010-16 with the New York Jets.

For his career, Folk has made 80.3 percent of his field goals and 98.8 percent of his extra points.

With Arizona from 2003-06, Folk made 30 field goals (including 15 as a senior) and was 79 of 81 on extra points.
