Carney Likely Not Back

From Pro Football Talk:

The New York Giants don’t plan to retain kicker John Carney and will rely solely next season on Lawrence Tynes, according to the New York Daily News.

The 44-year-old Carney, who kicked three field goals in the Pro Bowl as the oldest player to ever play in the league’s annual all-star game, is an unrestricted free agent.

Tynes’ knee injury during the preseason led to the Giants to retain two kickers on the roster last season as Carney saved the day with a banner season by converting 35 of 38 field goals with two attempts blocked.

And that success is why Carney isn’t inclined to retire and wants to kick somewhere in 2009. Per his agent, Tom Mills, Carney has “no reason to quit now.”
