Pats part ways with Bobby Carpenter

Bobby Carpenter AP

The return of linebacker Bobby Carpenter was brief.  At least he got a trip to London out of it.

The Patriots have announced that Carpenter, a first-round pick of the Cowboys in 2006, has been released.  He signed with the Patriots in early October, appearing in four games.

Carpenter spent the preseason with the Pats, being cut just before the start of the regular season.  Because he was cut before the trade deadline, Carpenter immediately becomes a free agent.

    Dallas’ LB core is thinning, do they give him another look?

    Is there a direct flight from Foxborough to New Orleans?

    They must be activating someone from PUP or moving someone up from the PS.

    Or maybe, there is a big trade coming soon. I can’t see a street FA being an upgrade over Carpenter.

    Jerry’s handpick end pick of 2006.

    Bob is now a full fledged journeyman Carpenter.

    He seems like a pretty decent fella. Last year, I wish he had played all season like he played against Dallas.

    Detroit doesn’t really have a need, except for maybe to bring him back on special teams. I wouldn’t be sorry if he became a Lion again.

    Shiancoe has been practicing. He can catch better than Fells.

    Remember when his special teams ineptitude got John Bonamego fired in Miami? Good times.

    This guy has become the Andy Dick of the NFL. He’s a terrible joke that no one finds funny, yet he always seems to find a job somewhere.

    He’s a classic example of a guy who can’t play but who will keep getting chances because he was a high draft pick and is a recognizable name.

    The Buffalo Bills could use him. He may be terrible but he would instantly be the best linebacker on the team. That’s how pathetic their linebackers are.

    No, he was Parcells’ pick. Parcells coached his father, Rob Carpenter, the RB. That being said, I think Dallas should re-sign him as a MLB to fill the void from Lee’s injury.

    You kidding me? Shanle? Herring? Casillas Hawthorne and Vilma are unreliable week to week. Our lB corps is very bad right now!

    Redskins should be calling this guy.

    Not his fault he got overdrafted. He’s an OK player, doesn’t live up to first round billing but he didn’t seem to do anything glaringly dumb in his time in Detroit.
