Report: Carpenter flying up to Buffalo

(WGR 550) -- With the free agency period approaching, all has been silent regarding any activity of the Buffalo Bills -- until now.
According to Rand Getlin of Yahoo! Sports, Bills kicker and impending unrestricted free agent Dan Carpenter took a flight from South Florida up to Buffalo today. The flight conceivably could be a precursor to the Bills re-signing Carpenter once the market opens up at 4 pm.

The Bills are not able to sign Carpenter before the start of the new league year because he was signed to a veteran minimum deal that brought Buffalo some cap relief, according to Mark Gaughan of the Buffalo News.

Carpenter, 28, is coming off a career season hitting 91.7-percent of his attempts with a long of 55 yards. Before signing the veteran, the Bills concluded a training camp battle by giving the job to rookie and sixth-round pick Dustin Hopkins. The rookie sustained an injury, the Bills signed Carpenter and he remained the kicker for the rest of the season.

Keep checking back for any new details.
