MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The Miami Dolphins were having a kicking competition in the first few weeks of training camp, but apparently that competition is over with the less expensive player winning.

The Dolphins announced Wednesday that kicker Dan Carpenter had been cut from the roster. Carpenter was on the books for more than $3 million in 2013, which will instead come off the Dolphins’ books.

Carpenter’s job was in jeopardy since the NFL Draft when the Dolphins selected kicker Caleb Sturgis out of the University of Florida.

Sturgis kicked well in the preseason and put a couple of kickoffs out of the end zone against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
