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.
