Rams Rumors: Barron To Cowboys for Carpenter

The Pro Football Talk rumor mill is churning again with Alex Barron possibly headed to the Cowboys for outside linebacker Bobby Carpenter.

Bobby Carpenter would help fill the vacancy at outside linebacker.

Carpenter was a first round pick in 2006.

This would be a master stroke for the Rams… which means it probably won’t happen.

UPDATE: From Pro Football Talk

PFT has learned from a league source that the Rams and Cowboys have discussed a trade that would send tackle Alex Barron to Dallas for linebacker Bobby Carpenter.

While this is only a rumor for now, we hear the deal has a good chance of getting done.

UPDATE 2: Adam Schefter has it on Twitter that it is getting close to being done.

UPDATE 3: Looks like Carpenter was a miscast in the Cowboys newish 3-4 alignment and was only used in nickel and obvious passing situations.  Carpenter would easily spell Vobora or Diggs in passing situations and potentially supplant Diggs as a starter.
