Veteran kicker Jay Feely has lost the competition in Arizona.

The Cardinals have decided to release Feely, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

“It’s been an honor to play for the Arizona Cardinals,” Feely wrote on Twitter. “Michael Bidwill, thank you for your leadership and friendship. AZ will still be home!”

Chandler Catanzaro, a rookie out of Clemson, has been competing with Feely through training camp and the preseason. Catanzaro has made all of his field goals in the preseason, while Feely missed a field goal in Sunday’s preseason game.

The 38-year-old Feely still has a shot of catching on somewhere, as the kicking situation is up in the air in several cities. Denver, where kicker Matt Prater is suspended for the first four games of the season, may be a short-term option.
