FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- The New York Jets have signed kicker Dan Carpenter to compete with incumbent Nick Folk, and released Billy Cundiff.

Carpenter was released by the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, four days after he was signed to compete with Jay Feely. Carpenter attempted one field goal, a 26-yarder that was blocked in the Cardinals' 24-7 preseason loss to the San Diego Chargers on Saturday night.

Cundiff kicked a 32-yard field goal in overtime Saturday night to lead the Jets past the Giants 24-21. That came after Folk, the Jets' kicker the past three seasons, missed a 39-yard attempt early in the extra period.

Carpenter spent his first five seasons with Miami and made the Pro Bowl in 2009. He was released by the Dolphins on Aug. 14.
