    Carney sticks with Saints in new role

    METAIRIE, La. -- Two days after waiving veteran kicker John Carney, the Saints have brought him back as a kicking consultant.

    Saints coach Sean Payton announced the move after Thursday's practice. Payton says the 45-year-old Carney's knowledge of the game from his 21 years of playing experience will be invaluable to second-year place kicker Garrett Hartley.

    By accepting the job, Carney may not under NFL rules kick for the Saints or any other team for the rest of this season.

    Carney played in 11 games this season, making 13 of 17 field goals and 50 of 52 point-after tries.

    Carney was waived on Tuesday along with cornerback Marcus McCauley when the Saints re-signed fullback Kyle Eckel and added safety Herana-Daze Jones.
