WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- The Miami Dolphins reportedly handed kicker Dan Carpenter a three-year contract extension Wednesday.
The Palm Beach Post reports the pact runs through the 2013 season and is worth $6.205 million. The reported breakdown has Carpenter collecting $1.005 million in 2011, $2.525 million in 2012 and $2.675 million in the final year. He's scheduled to make $470,000 in the upcoming season.
It comes on the heels of Carpenter's first Pro Bowl selection in just his second year in the league. The 24-year-old made 25-of-28 field goals and all but one of his 38 extra point attempts in 2009.
The Montana product has connected on 46-of-53 field goals as Miami's full-time kicker the last two seasons. His longest boot came in 2009 from 52 yards.
