11:40 AM ET 12.21 | According to their team Twitter account, the Miami Dolphins have signed K Nate Kaeding. In a corresponding move, they placed Dan Carpenter on injured reserve with a groin injury. Kaeding was released by the Chargers earlier this season dealing with his own groin injury, but he seems to be healthy now. Carpenter finishes his season making 21-of-27 field goals.

So they didn't actually "swap" kickers, they replaced an injured player by signing a free agent. The headline writer either didn't read the story, or didn't understand it very well.
