The New York Jets announced on Friday that they have signed Derek Dimke and Ryan Quigley.

Dimke entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Detroit Lions (5/10/12), spent the preseason with the team before being waived. The kicker appeared in three preseason games for Detroit and knocked in both his field goal attempts.

The Rockford, IL-native finished his college career as Illinois’ all-time leader in field goal and PAT accuracy, converting on 39-of-46 field goal attempts and hitting all 89 of his extra points tries.

Quigley, meanwhile, joined the NFL after he signed with Chicago as an undrafted free agent 5/13/12). The Little River, SC-native had four preseason games in 2012 punting 16 times for a 41.4 average. As a senior at Boston College in 2011, he finished fourth in the nation with 28 punts downed inside the 20.
