Bills could keep Dan Carpenter, Dustin Hopkins


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/11/2014) The Bills could decide to keep two kickers this season with Dan Carpenter and Dustin Hopkins, reports the Buffalo News.

Last year, the Bills drafted Hopkins in the sixth round, but he hurt his groin right before the season began, and Carpenter signed and had a great season. The Bills last month re-signed Carpenter to a four-year contract worth $9.95 million, and Hopkins still is on the roster.

The report says Carpenter could continue to handle field goal and extra point attempts, and Hopkins will be used for kickoffs. 

"Would you like to have one guy that can do both? No doubt about it," Bills general manager Doug Whaley said. "But this is a situation where if it makes our team better, we're going to do it. ... Is keeping Dustin Hopkins better for the team that keeping an extra receiver, an extra DB? You juggle that."
