Arizona signs Carpenter to compete with Feely for kicking job
GLENDALE, Ariz. – The Arizona Cardinals have signed Dan Carpenter to compete with Jay Feely as the team's kicker.
Carpenter was released by the Miami Dolphins a week ago. He signed with the Dolphins as an undrafted rookie in 2008 and, coincidentally, took Feely's job away from him there that season.
The 37-year-old Feely says he isn't afraid of competition and knows as he grows older he must prove he still can do the job at a high level. Ten years younger than Feely, Carpenter made 22 of 27 field goals last season. Feely made 25 of 28.
The Cardinals also released wide receivers Robert Gill and Robby Toma.
