Cardinals try out kicker Josh Brown, Feely appears to be on thin ice

Jason Miller

The Cardinals brought in kicker Josh Brown, formally of the St. Louis Rams, for a tryout on Tuesday. Does that signal the end of the Jay Feely era?

The Arizona Cardinals may be in the market for a new kicker.

On Tuesday, the team brought in former Rams and Seahawks kicker Josh Brown for a workout, according to Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic. Brown is currently a free agent after the Rams drafted Greg Zuerlein in the 2012 NFL Draft. In 2011 with the Rams, Brown was 21/28 in field goal attempts, making 8/12 from 40-49 yards out and 0/2 from more than 50 yards.

The tryout comes on the heels of the struggles of Cardinals kicker, Jay Feely. As Somers notes, Feely has missed a field goal in each of his last three games, one of which was deflected by Alex Carrington of the Buffalo Bills.

While I don't believe anything will come of this, this must serve as a warning sign for Feely. He now knows that the coaches are unhappy with how he has produced and are willing to replace him if need be. If anything, I think this was used to light a fire under him more than anything else.

Do the Cardinals sign Brown? I don't think so. But if Feely continues to struggle, expect Brown to get a call.
