This was inevitable:
We've released K Sergio Castillo.— New York Jets (@nyjets) December 15, 2020
There's no surprise here. Castillo had kicked well while Sam Ficken was injured initially but then as soon as he went on injured reserve, the pressure started to show. In his first three games, his only miss was on a field goal that was blocked but he missed five kicks in the last three, including three of four on Sunday.
The Jets claimed Chase McLaughlin on waivers earlier this week and also have Ficken due to come back from injured reserve any time soon.
