Nick Folk won a spirited Jets PK battle with Josh Brown after the team announced Brown was among its cuts to 74 players.

Folk made 3-of-3 field-goal attempts in Sunday night's 17-12 preseason loss to the Panthers and Brown made 1-of-2 FG attempts. His miss came from 45 yards following a false-start penalty after making a 40-yard attempt.

On Monday morning, Brown tweeted, "Best of luck to the 2012 Jets... Thanks for one of the most memorable camps in 10 yrs. GREAT GROUP OF GUYS!!"

In addition to releasing Brown, the team waived/injured FB-TE Josh Baker (knee) and waived LB Damario Ambrose, WR Stanley Arukwe, WR Wes Kemp and RB Jeremy Stewart.
 
The cuts leave the team with 74 players on the active roster.
