Starter: Jay Feely

Backup: 0

Under contract in 2014: 0

Cash committed in '13: $1.55 million

Cap committed in '13: $2.05 million

Recap: While generally consistent, kicker Jay Feely had his share of ups and downs through 2013. After winning his job late in training camp when head coach Bruce Arians brought in Dan Carpenter to challenge, Feely missed one of two field goals in Week 1, doing little to win Arian’s support. But then Feely rebounded to make his next 17, including a game-winner at Tampa Bay. He finished the season hitting 12 of his final 17 field goals, including just 2-of-4 in the season finale against San Francisco. But during that stretch, Feely hit a game-winner in overtime at Nashville, which helped propel Arizona to a 7-2 finish. Feely finished the season much like he started it, fighting to stay in Arians’ good graces, and it didn’t help that Arians wasn’t pleased with Feely’s kickoffs against the Niners. After the season, Arians was non-committal about keeping Feely in 2014, saying it would be a business decision if the Cardinals re-signed the kicker.
