• Dolphins dump Carpenter, keeping Sturgis

    Summary of 6 articles · Updated Aug 15, 2013
    The Dolphins announced Wednesday afternoon that they have released veteran kicker Dan Carpenter, who was competing with Sturgis for the job in Miami this season. For Sturgis, the pressure to compete with an experienced NFL kicker is now off.

"On behalf of the Miami Dolphins, I would like to thank Dan for his contributions he has made as a member of the organization,” Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland said in a statement. "For the past five seasons Dan has been a tireless worker on the field, while devoting countless hours of his time off the field to the betterment of the South Florida community," Ireland said.
