Place-kicker Jay Feely will return to the Arizona Cardinals for a fifth season.

Feely, an unrestricted free agent, reported via Twitter on Monday evening that he has a new deal with the Cardinals

Feely, 37, made 30 of 36 field-goal attemps last season, an 83.3 success rate that ranked 21st among NFL kickers. Coach Bruce Arians has expressed concern regarding his kickoffs --€“ only 37.8 percent of them went for a touchback last season --€“ and the Cardinals brought in Dan Carpenter to compete for Feely'€™s position prior to the 2013 season.

Feely has played for four teams in his 13-year career. In four seasons in Arizona, he is perfect on 124 extra-point attempts and has made 98 of 115 field-goal tries (85.2 percent). He is 8 of 12 from 50-plus yards in a Cardinals uniform.
