Carney played for the Saints from 2001-06, then returning last season when Hartley was suspended four games for use of a banned stimulant. Carney was active for 11 games, then remained as a kicking consultant through the playoffs and Super Bowl, when Hartley made one clutch kick after another. Hartley hit the overtime winner in the NFC title game, then set a Super Bowl record with three field goals of 40 yards or more.

Carney said Hartley was in good form once again at practice on Wednesday.

“He’s fine,” Carney said. “He’s striking the ball well.”
