DAVIE, Fla. (AP) -The Miami Dolphins have cut kicker Jay Feely, a year after he set the team's single-season record for field-goal percentage.
Feely's release Tuesday clears the way for undrafted rookie Dan Carpenter to take over as the team's starting kicker. Carpenter made field goals of 41 and 49 yards in Miami's 17-6 preseason loss to Tampa Bay on Saturday.
Feely has been sidelined with a groin strain that forced him to sit out practice last week and miss the preseason opener.
He made 21 of 23 field goals last season and was one of the few bright spots on the 1-15 Dolphins. But his outspoken nature often clashed with the new Bill Parcells-led regime, which has overhauled the roster with younger players.
