2013 Outlook: Bye Week Fill-inLast updated on Aug-21-2013 by Chris Weeks
Update (8-16): The Dolphins waived Carpenter in favor of fifth-round rookie Caleb Sturgis, but don't expect the 27-year-old to be out of work for long. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported this week that teams have begun checking in. Carpenter went 51 of 61 on field goal attempts over the past two seasons.
Carpenter may be listed as the Dolphins' number one kicker, but that could easily change come week one. Dan has a pretty hefty salary and his lack of production on the field is not helping his cause. Couple this with Miami's decision to draft Caleb Sturgis and one could infer Carpenter's days in Miami are numbered. No matter if it is Carpenter or Sturgis, the Dolphins' offense needs to move the ball into scoring range for these guys to be useful. Until we see just how well Miami's offense moves the ball this season, it may be best to look elsewhere for a starting kicker.
