                       === Bills sign K Dan Carpenter ===
 
 Orchard  Park, NY (Sports Network) - Maybe Buffalo is the right fit for kicker
 Dan Carpenter.
 
 The Bills signed Carpenter to the 53-man roster on Tuesday.
 
 The  veteran kicker has been released by the Miami Dolphins, Arizona Cardinals
 and New York Jets since Aug. 14.
 
 The  Bills  were in need  of a kicker after  rookie Dustin Hopkins suffered an
 injury during Monday's practice.
 
 Carpenter  made the  Dolphins  as an  undrafted  free agent  in  2008 and  was
 selected  to  the Pro Bowl  a season later  after connecting on 25-of-28 field
 goal attempts and compiling 112 points. He also holds the franchise record for
 the longest field goal made, a 60-yarder against Cleveland on Dec. 5, 2010.
 
 The  27-year-old  finished with  a career-low 92  points last season, however,
 while hitting on 22-of-27 field goals.
 
 During  his  tenure with the  Dolphins (2008-12), Carpenter went 127-of-155 on
 field  goals  (81.9 percent)  and missed  just one  point-after attempt in 155
 tries.
