Brian Bassett, TheJetsBlog.comWhen the Dolphins cut Carpenter, I wondered if the Jets would have interest and it seems like that it is a possibility. Like most any kicker, Carpenter struggles in kicks over 50 yards but had more trouble last year with his 40+ yarder a than ever before. The other unknown here is how he would fare in cold-weather games during late November and December. From a check over at footballoutsiders.com, Folk and Carpenter were equivalent last year so if the Jets were to do it, it might be a lateral move. Maybe more than anything, this is an indication that the Jets are considering upgrading at the kicker position, but maybe they would be looking for someone even better than Carpenter who might become available in the next three weeks
