Jay Feely returns for 5th season with Cardinals
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
Happy to announce I am signed back with the @AZCardinals I never wanted to play with different teammates or for another organization.

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.
