Boyer comments on competition between Pinero/Zuerlein

Q)Dennis Waszak, Associated Press: It’s a little different this year having two veteran kickers in camp, right?

Brant Boyer – Jets Special Teams Coordinator: Yeah, it is. It’s been good to see those guys battling back and forth, and it’s been a really tight competition. They’re both doing a really nice job, and it is neck and neck so far, and we’ll see what happens as we get through the mandatory minicamp and into training camp. But of course, what matters is in the games in the preseason, that’s what’s going to determine who we keep and who we don’t. They’ve both been doing a really nice job, both have adjusted really well. (Greg) Zuerlein has come in and fits right into our room and has done a fanatic job so far. Eddy (Pinero) has improved his rise and things that I’ve asked him to do. So, it’s going to be a heck of a competition.

Q)Ryan Dunleavy, New York Post: Zuerlein, how does he look health-wise after the back surgeries he’s gone through? 

Boyer: It’s been good. First question, I think his back is fine. I don’t see any issues that he’s had since he’s been here. He’s been great in the room, done everything I asked him to do. He’s a pleasure to be around. I think that whoever we end up keeping, I think we’re in pretty good shape to be honest with you. We’ll see how they do as we progress here.

Q)Brian Costello, New York Post: Is that competition dead even or does Eddy have the advantage because he’s the incumbent?

Boyer: No, I think when we create competition, it’s for the job. I don’t think anybody has a leg up on anybody as of right now. I don’t know what the percentages are, I haven’t looked at it in a week or so, but I would say that it’s within a few kicks difference. I don’t think there’s any frontrunner as of right now.
