The Arizona Cardinals have reportedly already made up their mind on their kicking situation -- for now, at least. According to a report by Mike Garafolo, the team has released kicker Dan Carpenter, whom they had just signed last week.arpenter did not have a good game on Saturday. He was slated to kick the first half of the game against the Chargers, but he never got a chance to kick off, and the only kick he got to attempt -- from 26 yards -- was blocked.
The move will cost the Cardinals $110,000 against the salary cap.
However, this does not mean that incumbent kicker Jay Feely is for sure the guy the team will keep around. He, by the way, made the only kick he attempted -- an extra point. He did not get a touchback with either of the two times he kicked off. According to Mike Jurecki, the Cardinals have their eyes on two other kickers.
Teams have until 4PM EST Monday to trim their rosters down to 75 players.
