Rudy Carpenter understands the QB situation
“My first couple of years in the NFL it was really hard, a lot of anxiety and you don’t know what’s going to happen,” Carpenter said. “Now this is my fourth time going through it and I just kind of learn to accept that it is what it is and a lot of times you can’t do anything about it. They’re going to make the decision that’s best for their organization and the team.”
Carpenter completed 4-of-10 passes for 48 yards and was sacked once in the second half of Wednesday’s 30-13 win against Miami. Stephen McGee played the first half with 124 yards through the air, completing 9-of-18 passes. He was also sacked once.
Carpenter is practice squad eligible but McGee is not. It is possible the Cowboys could keep only two quarterbacks on the 53-man roster.
“I think it’s a blessing and a curse,” Carpenter said of having practice squad eligibility. “Everybody comes to OTAs and training camp to make the 53-man roster. It’s a big deal to do that but it’s also a blessing for me that I’m practice squad eligible because it’s another avenue to stay here in Dallas and try and develop and let next year happen and maybe it happens for me then. But obviously my goal personally is to make the active roster.”
