              === Cardinals sign K Carpenter to one-year deal ===
 
 Tempe,  AZ  (Sports  Network)  -  The  Arizona  Cardinals  signed  kicker  Dan
 Carpenter   to  a  one-year  contract  Wednesday.  Financial  terms  were  not
 disclosed.
 
 Carpenter  had been released  by the Miami Dolphins on August 14 after a five-
 year  tenure with the team. He converted 22-of-27 field goal attempts and made
 all  26 extra  point tries last season, while producing 30 touchbacks among 65
 kickoffs.
 
 The  27-year-old has converted 81.9 percent of his field goals and all but one
 of  his  155 extra-point attempts over  his five-year career. However, he lost
 out  to rookie Caleb  Sturgis in a battle for the Dolphins' kicking job during
 camp.
 
 Carpenter  will be  battling veteran  Jay  Feely for  the team's  spot on  the
 roster. The 37-year-old Feely, who missed a pair of field goal attempts in the
 first two preseason games, is set to make $1.5 million this season.
 
 This  isn't the first  time these two kickers will be vying for a roster spot.
 The  Dolphins signed Carpenter as an undrafted rookie in 2008, and he beat out
 Feely for the starting job.
 
 In addition, the Cardinals released wide receivers Robert Gill and Robby Toma.
