Bills planning to sign former Dolphins K Dan Carpenter, per source. Carpenter has bounced around past two weeks.


Will Hopkins be released or are they going with two kickers on the roster?

I am guessing Hopkins injured himself in practice.  Just a guess.

This is just step 1.  Perhaps Carpenter is just comfortable with us not keeping Powell as his holder!  :lol:

If they go and cut Hopkins now - that'll be two years in a row where they've wasted draft picks on kickers, only to release them.  This team needs every draft pick it can get.  They are such a Micky Mouse organization.

What would a kicker know about offense or defense?

Good call. All 7th rounders make the team & become productive NFL players.

Carpenter: "You gotta watch that number 26.  That guy is fast!  He's like there, then you look back, and he's gone!  Seriously!"

Seabiscuit, didn't you just go off (your rocker) in another thread talking about how one sixth round pick is what separates us from the Patriots?

That fits that you are a fan (if you are) since you are Dopey.

Kind of like signing Tavaris Jackson and then cutting him before minicamp?

@AdamSchefter
Buffalo decided to sign former Dolphins K Dan Carpenter after its kicker Dustin Hopkins injured his groin during practice today.
