Post Bobby Carpenter SIGNED --- Charlie Anderson cut
Seems Miami likes picking up their past player way to much. Maybe they feel they can get something out of him. Not sure.

Quote:
Carpenter signed (KFFL) The Miami Dolphins have signed unrestricted free-agent LB Bobby Carpenter (Rams), according to NFL Network's Jason La Canfora. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.


Quote:
The Ohio State product surprisingly lost out to Larry Grant for the starting weak-side linebacker gig by showing inferior physicality.

Lmao...I always knew this guy would end up in Miami.

He's a good ST'er and nickel LB if nothing else. Who got cut?

EDIT:

Charlie Anderson got cut to make room for him...WTF?

This week just keeps getting weirder man...

@PhinsRock below average across the board unfortunately based on '09. Plays ST, wouldn't say he stands out on them. Underachieving LB

Not sure on this move. Charlie Anderson made some big plays in very limited action for Miami in 2009 and he showed the ability to rush the passer, a rare commodity in Miami. He forced two fumbles in 2009 and recovered one fumble and forced two fumbles in 2008. He had 2.5 sacks in 2009 and 2 sacks in 2008. Bobby Carpenter was a former 1st round pick for the Cowboys and saw considerably more action then Anderson in 2009 with 37 tackles and 2 sacks. Carpenter is a year younger, but I think Anderson is a better pass rusher. I think I would have kept Anderson, but since Carpenter is a former Cowboy how could Parcells and company refuse!

Anderson, IMO, is, was, and always will be a backup player trying to earn a reserve roster spot every year... The end was coming when they tried him out as middle linebacker because they like Ike and Moses as reserve OLBs and the play of Dobbins and Johnson sealed his doom.... as for Carpenter... not a fan but if he can contribute on our Special teams then more power to him.

Why don't we just sign everybody who used to play for the Cowboys in the past five years? They must have the greatest roster in football right now, because we just love their leftovers in Miami.

he was signed as a nickel or coverage backer.... that what Edds was drafted for and we really dont have anyone to fill that role... Anderson is a better pass rusher, but not good enough to start for this team..so I really don't see it as some great loss :cry:

I know Anderson isn't a GREAT pass rusher....but who on the Dolphins besides Cameron Wake can be considered a quality pass rusher at this point?

Dont you know Dave - these guys sneak out at night with the playbook , go to Kinkos where they have the playbook scanned & saved on a little flash drive in PDF format so they can sneak it out when they are cut & show it to their new teams.

Wow, so after two/three years of botched trades to acquire this Cowboys backup we finally get him. I guess Parcells and Ireland weren't ready to let that "acorn" get away.

I like Carpenter, and he played well in the preseason for the RAms... surprised they cut him

It's interesting, from what I can gather from everyone here and what I've read on Carpenter the guy has good cover skills. Now I know Nolan is a defensive coordinator that likes to pick specific guys for specific roles. Maybe we got rid of Anderson not because he wasn't good, but rather because he was not particularly good at one role/thing. Maybe the guy didn't have one aspect of his game that was excellent and maybe this Carpenter guy does.

He did to an extent... Look over each roster and notice the pro bowl players and key starters stayed put...

Basically they take the # 2 guys and youngsters they were grooming...

None of us would be complaining if he took all the good ones, we would have an "All Parcells" team down here, and thats a team I would trust against an "All Madden" team LOL

RotoWorld thinks that cutting Charlie Anderson was an "easy call".


Quote:
Dolphins released OLB Charlie Anderson. An easy call: the move saves Miami from having to pay him $2.2 million. The Fins tried to push Anderson as a starter for two years, but finally wizened up this offseason, drafting Koa Misi to rush the passer. Anderson just couldn't get to the quarterback, posting five sacks in his last 32 games. The 28-year-old could resurface with a 4-3 club at outside linebacker.

He's listed at ILB, not OLB.

And in a 3-4, the primary pass rushers are OLBs and that is the OLB's primary function on passing downs.

2. Bobby Carpenter shouldn’t be perceived as a difference-maker on defense.

Dallas stuck with Carpenter for four years with minimal returns before trading him to St. Louis, and then the Rams couldn’t find a spot for him on their 53-man roster. So this is the guy who’s going to be the first inside linebacker off the bench?

Carpenter was an excellent player at Ohio State, where he played alongside fellow first-rounder A.J. Hawk. Bill Parcells thought enough of him to select him 18th overall in 2006, and he played more as a rookie than he has in the three years since.

Carpenter’s propensity to avoid physical contact has earned him the nickname of ‘Bambi’ over the years. Doesn’t sound like the kind of guy who’s going to step up on fourth-and-goal at the 1.

Bambi? That doesn't sound like a Parcells kind of a player. He won't be around long if he plays like that.

Something about that quote doesn't seem right. Who calls him Bambi? Reporters? Because I can't believe that players and/or coaches would call him that to his face...doesn't seem very endearing.
