In a swap of veteran kickers, Billy Cundiff is out of work and the well-traveled Dan Carpenter is on the move again.

The Jets have announced that they released kicker Billy Cundiff and signed kicker Dan Carpenter today. Carpenter will now have a few days to compete with Nick Folk before the Jets choose one for their 53-man roster.

Cundiff has been with the Jets for four weeks and made all of his field goals and all of his extra points in the preseason, but that wasn’t enough to keep his spot on the roster.

Carpenter has had a busy preseason: He was cut by the Dolphins, signed briefly with Arizona and then cut by the Cardinals.
