Bills' Dan Carpenter: Boots a pair
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carpenter made both of his field-goal attempts during Sunday's upset over the Cardinals -- a 19-yarder and a 45-yarder -- but missed one of four extra-point attempts.

The extra-point attempts were a big issue last season, when six misses almost cost Carpenter his job. However, Sunday's miss was his first of the season, and he's been true on eight others. With the Bills winning big, Carpenter's job seems fairly secure for the time being; however, his 17 points on the season put him just tied for 21st among the league's kickers.

Bills' Dan Carpenter: Confirmed as Bills kicker
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Carpenter's teammate Jordan Gay was released by the Bills on Wednesday, ESPN's Mike Rodak reports.

Gay was used as a kickoff specialist last season and was brought in for the same potential role this campaign, more so than as a threat to Carpenter's place-kicking job. Despite missing six extra points last season, Carpenter has been reliable throughout his career, converting 84.8 percent of his field-goal attempt, including 96 percent (123 of 128) from inside of 40 yards. He has also made 13 field goals of 50-plus yards (on 19 attempts) in his three seasons with the Bills.

Bills' Dan Carpenter: Locking up his spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carpenter made all 11 of his attempts (between 25 and 47 yards) during Friday's practice, Joe Buscaglia of WKBW reports. The veteran has now hit his last 21 field goal attempts in practice.

No one can see anyone giving Carpenter competition as we start to head toward preseason games, meaning you can pretty much slot him in as the Bills' kicker for Week 1. As long as he can improve upon last season's miserable 34-for-40 output on extra points, his job should be about as safe as it goes in the placekicking world.

Bills' Dan Carpenter: Looking strong in camp
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Carpenter went 9 for 9 on his field goal attempts during Tuesday night's practice session. His kicks ranged from 33 to 50 yards, BuffaloBills.com reports.

Carpenter almost lost his job last season, mostly because he couldn't seem to hit an extra point, but coach Rex Ryan stuck with him and he's the clear frontrunner for the job in 2016. He's typically about as clutch as it gets in a poor-weather city like Buffalo, so with the new kickoff rules not penalizing his average length as much, there seems to be little incentive for the Bills to bring in competition for him this summer.

Bills' Dan Carpenter: Accepts renegotiated deal
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Carpenter agreed to lower his 2016 base salary from $2.025 million to $1.775 million, ESPN's Mike Rodak reports.

A candidate to be released, Carpenter had to make some concessions if he wanted to stick with Buffalo. In addition to a $250,000 pay cut that can be recouped through incentives, he also agreed to move his upcoming $250,000 roster bonus back to September. Carpenter will still have to fend off competition for his job, as last season's 85.2-percent conversion rate on field goals would look a whole lot better if he hadn't missed six extra points.
