A vote for Rams' Bobby Carpenter

By Mike Sando

Jeremy Green of Scouts Inc. thinks the Rams' move to acquire Bobby Carpenter from the Cowboys will help the linebacker become a much more effective player.

Green's Insider piece answers four questions in some depth, including one about Carpenter. Twenty-four of his 192 words on Carpenter: "Getting him back to a traditional 4-3 defense where he can just read and react on the weak side will be a huge help."

This is one of the few pro-Carpenter evaluations I've seen since the Rams acquired him from the Cowboys for Alex Barron. Thought I'd pass it along to balance out previous discussions.
