Dolphins release K Dan Carpenter

carpenterIt appears that the competition to be the Miami Dolphins’ Kicker has come to an end.

The Miami Dolphins released K Dan Carpenter today, which paves the way for rookie 5th round pick Caleb Sturgis to be the team’s kicker for the 2013 season.

According to the Miami Herald’s Armando Salguero, Carpenter’s release will save the Dolphins close to $1.9 million this season.

Carpenter has converted 81.9% of his Field Goals since winning the job as an undrafted Free Agent out of Montana as a rookie in 2008. Over the last two seasons, Carpenter is 47-for-52 (90.3%) on FG attempts under 50 yards, but only 4-for-9 from 50+ (44.4%).

Caleb Sturgis likely put the nail in Carpenter’s coffin in last Friday’s game against the Jaguars with FG’s of 36 and 58 yards.

Look for Dan Carpenter to be signed quickly.
