Carney and cornerback Marcus McCauley were cut by the team Tuesday. The Saints re-signed fullback Kyle Eckel and safety Herana-Daze Jones.

Carney was inactive the following week at Washington. He was replaced by Garrett Hartley.
Carney converted 23 of 25 field goals for the Saints in 2006. But, he was not tendered a contract in 2007 as the Saints traded for Dolphins
