Dolphins sign longtime Chargers kicker Nate Kaeding
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.
