Description: Buffalo place-kicker Dan Carpenter will stay with the Bills in 2014.
Insight: Carpenter was solid going 33-of-36 (91.7 percent) and 32-of-32 on extra points last season. He was 4-of-6 from 50-yards and beyond so obviously has plenty of leg.

Description: Former Dolphins place-kicker Dan Carpenter has signed on with Arizona and will compete with Jay Feely for the job.
Insight: Miami went with rookie Caleb Sturgis. Feely hit 25-of-28 last season, including 2-for-2 from over 50 yards, so we're not sure why they signed Carpenter or whether he'll get a real shot to win the job at this point in the preseason.

Description: Dolphins place-kicker Dan Carpenter has been placed on the injured list.
Insight: Nate Kaeding, formerly of the San Diego Chargers, has been signed to replace Carpenter. Kaeding was perfect on the season in three games, 7-for-7 on field goal tries and 6-for-6 on extra points, before an injury put him on the sidelines.

Description: The usually-reliable Dan Carpenter missed four FGs today as the Dolphins eliminated themselves from playoff contention with a 17-14 home loss to Buffalo.
Insight: Carpenter, who hit from 61 yards last week, missed two field goals of 48 yards, one from 53 and another from 61, so it's not like he was missing chippies. Still, he has to convert at least one of the two 48-yarders and this game would have gone to overtime. Carpenter, along with HC Tony Sparano, might be looking for work soon.
