The Dolphins announced the signing of kicker Nate Kaeding on Friday. He will replace kicker Dan Carpenter who has been placed on the reserve/injured list.

Kaeding was a perfect seven-of-seven on field goal attempts and six-of-six on PATs with the Chargers this season. The two-time Pro Bowl pick injured his groin in practice on Sept. 28, was released from injured reserve and became a free agent on Oct. 30 after nine years with the Chargers.

His 87.0 percent conversion rate ranks him as the most accurate kicker in NFL history.
