Arizona and former Dolphins K reached agreement on 1-year deal. Carpenter took current Cardinals K Jay Feely's job in Miami.

Strange that Carpenter will sign with the Cardinals and be a competition for Jay Feely, who's a solid kicker, rather than sign with a team like the Saints or Packers who have more suspect kickers on their rosters.

Feely went 25 of 28 last season good for 89.3%, with a long kick of 61 yards so he still has plenty of leg.

Sticking with Feely.

This is a strange makes no sense signing. Why didn't Carpenter go to a team like the Packers? Feely hit 89% of his kicks last season, they are a team that doesn't need a upgrade at kicker.

Feely has been pretty terrible so far this preseason. I was getting concerned last week. I read the team was also concerned with his leg for kickoffs

Carpenter isn't that hot at kickoffs either. Wish him well though.

Remember it was Carpenter that pushed Feeley out of Miami.

Crosby has made a few in a row now since his horrible showing at Family Night. Hopefully Ted still gives Carpenter a look. A reliable kicker would do this offense a world of good.
