Free agent K Dan Carpenter will work out for the Jaguars.
This comes on the heels of a rough night for incumbent Jason Myers, who shanked a 40-yarder and also missed his lone PAT attempt in Thursday's preseason loss to Tampa Bay. Carpenter was released by Buffalo in March after converting just 19-of-25 attempts last year including 5-of-11 from beyond 40 yards. He wouldn't be an improvement on Myers. Aug 18 - 1:10 PM

Bills released K Dan Carpenter.

The Bills' kicker since 2013, Carpenter was one of coach Rex Ryan's preferred scapegoats. Carpenter's release creates $2.4 million in cap space, but is also likely performance related. Carpenter converted just 19-of-25 field goal attempts last season, good for a dismal 76 percent. NFL kickers need to typically make at least 80 percent of their field goals to stay employed.
Mar 6 - 2:52 PM

Dan Carpenter isn't a lock for the Bills' starting kicker job.

He's facing competition from undrafted rookie Marshall Morgan. Carpenter is coming off an unremarkable 2015 season that included six missed extra points. He's still the favorite but any slip-up at camp could cost him his starting job.

Bills K Dan Carpenter agreed to reduce his 2016 base salary from $2.025 million to $1.775 million.

The $250,000 roster bonus he was owed this week is now contingent on him making the final roster out of training camp. The moves will do little to help the Bills' cap situation. Carpenter hit 23-of-27 field goal attempts last season including 20-of-22 from inside 50 yards, but he was just 34-of-40 from the new extra point distance. He is clearly on the hot seat.
Tue, Mar 15, 2016 12:01:00 PM

Bills K Dan Carpenter missed his third field-goal attempt of the exhibition season in Thursday night's preseason finale.

Carpenter also missed an extra point in Buffalo's third preseason game. Coach Rex Ryan reiterated that Carpenter could be on the chopping block. "We'll certainly be looking (at kickers)," Ryan said. "Nobody earns this job by default." Carpenter did nail 34 of his 38 field-goal attempts last season.

Speaking Tuesday, Bills coach Rex Ryan said K Dan Carpenter "needs to kick better."

Carpenter converted 34-of-38 field goal attempts in 2014, but is just 2-of-4 this summer. He's also missed an extra point. Carpenter's Week 1 roster spot is secure, but he can't afford a slow start. The Bills are keeping Jordan Gay as a kickoff specialist.
Tue, Sep 1, 2015 02:00:00 PM

Bills activated K Dan Carpenter from the NFI list.

Carpenter missed the start of camp with a hamstring injury. Jordan Gay handled the kicking duties in Buffalo's preseason opener against Carolina, going 1-for-2 with a long of 52 yards. Carpenter made 34-of-38 field goals last season while nailing 31 of his 32 extra points.
Sun, Aug 16, 2015 10:25:00 AM

Bills K Dan Carpenter is recovering from surgery.

Carpenter is sitting out the beginning of the Bills' offseason program. It's unknown what kind of operation Carpenter is recovering from, but coach Rex Ryan didn't sound concerned about his status. He should be healthy for training camp.
Mon, Apr 6, 2015 03:05:00 PM

Bills re-signed K Dan Carpenter to a four-year, $9.9 million contract.

Carpenter had trouble near the end of his Dolphins tenure, but converted 33-of-36 field-goal attempts last season. He was 4-of-6 from 50-plus yards. Carpenter owns a career 83.8 conversion rate.
Tue, Mar 11, 2014 04:34:00 PM

Bills signed K Dan Carpenter.

Carpenter was scheduled to work out for the Browns after the Bills. The 27-year-old has spent time with the Dolphins, Jets, and Cardinals over the past three weeks. Bills rookie kicker Dustin Hopkins injured his groin in Monday's practice, which explains Buffalo's sudden need. The Bills could end up placing Hopkins on injured reserve, or Carpenter will fill in until Hopkins is ready.
Mon, Sep 2, 2013 07:25:00 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Bills plan to sign free agent K Dan Carpenter.

It's an indictment of rookie Dustin Hopkins, who was the 177th overall pick in April's draft. The Browns had also shown interest in 27-year-old Carpenter.
Mon, Sep 2, 2013 07:02:00 PM

Free agent kickers Dan Carpenter and Billy Cundiff will work out for the Browns Tuesday.

The Browns cut both Shayne Graham and Brandon Bogotay on Saturday, leaving them without a kicker on the roster. Carpenter is the favorite to win the gig.
Mon, Sep 2, 2013 11:32:00 AM

Jets released K Dan Carpenter.

Nick Folk will be the Jets' kicker in Week 1.
Fri, Aug 30, 2013 05:29:00 PM

Jets signed K Dan Carpenter.

Carpenter's busy preseason continues. He's on his third team this month after getting cut by the Dolphins and Cardinals. Carpenter will try to beat out Nick Folk by Saturday.
Tue, Aug 27, 2013 11:59:00 AM

Cardinals released K Dan Carpenter.

They're sticking with Jay Feely. Carpenter, 27, drew fairly significant interest following his release by the Dolphins and could resurface quickly.
