New York Jets Cut Houston Roughnecks K Sergio Castillo

The New York Jets have cut Houston Roughnecks K Sergio Castillo. He missed 3 field goals in the second quarter of yesterday’s Jets loss. The Jets lost to the Seattle Seahawks 40-3.

Castillo missed from 37, 41, and 43 yards and took the blame for New York’s offensive troubles.

“I just didn’t follow through on a couple ones and then it was just one after another. So I have to do better bouncing back. That’s on me.”

Castillo signed with the Jets practice squad on October 14th and was moved to the active roster on October 31st. He played in 6 games for New York going 8 of 15 in field-goal attempts (61.5%) including one for 55 yards. He also converted 6 of 7 on extra-point attempts. 

The Jets claimed Chase McLaughlin off waivers on Monday.

Castillo was drafted by the Houston Roughnecks in the Supplemental Draft portion of 2020 XFL Draft. He was 5 of 9 field goals in 5 games with the XFL. His longest was 44 yards.
