In a slightly unorthodox move the Arizona Cardinals and New York Jets could wind up  swapping kickers in the 2010 season

Former Jets kicker Jay Feely has already signed with Arizona, causing them to release previous kicker Neil Rackers. Now he is reported to be on his way to New York to discuss a contract with the Jets.

Rackers who became a free agent had ben in discussion with the Cardinals but they instead chose to go with Feely giving him a two-year deal worth about $3 million. Rackers was coming off of a Career high 94% success so this seems a slightly strange move by the Cardinals who in Jay Feely have a journeyman kicker who has not been a great success at any of his former clubs. Obviously not a case of the devil you know for Arizona.
