Bills swap out kickers, add Moore to WR crew

You can assume that Buffalo Bills kicker Dan Carpenter is now officially on notice.

After starting the season 5-for-7 in field-goal attempts and already missing one extra point at the new 33-yard distance, the team added veteran leg Billy Cundiff to the special-teams mix Wednesday, releasing 25-year-old Jordan Gay in the process.

The stop is Cundiff's sixth team in nine seasons, and the 35-year-old will likely compete right away with Carpenter for the starting gig. He's hit 76 percent of the nearly 250 field goals he's attempted in his career.

Buffalo also bounced wide receiver Marcus Thigpen from the roster, replacing him with five-year vet Denarius Moore. Thigpen was abysmal in his punt and kick return work this season for the Bills, a role Moore will likely inherit.
