  Cowboys | Not impressed with Stephen McGee     Mon Jun 18, 10:48 AM

The Dallas Cowboys have not been impressed with the development of QB Stephen McGee. McGee is expected to compete with QB Rudy Carpenter for a roster spot in training camp.

Footballguys view: McGee has had plenty of time to develop and has yet to impress. Deep dynasty league owners can feel free to cut ties with McGee at any time. The Cowboys could be interested in trading for Browns QB Colt McCoy.

  Cowboys | Two expected to compete for No. 3 QB job    Fri Apr 6, 02:35 PM

Dallas Cowboys QBs Rudy Carpenter and Stephen McGee are expected to compete for the No. 3 quarterback job during training camp.

Footballguys view: Carpenter was just picked up as the Buccaneers released him earlier this week. McGee's roster spot is certainly not guaranteed and the two will battle for a position in training camp.

  Cowboys | Rudy Carpenter claimed    Thu Apr 5, 05:02 PM

The Dallas Cowboys have claimed free-agent QB Rudy Carpenter (Buccaneers) off waivers.

Footballguys view: Carpenter was originally claimed by the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent out of Arizona State in 2009. The Buccaneers signed him off the Cowboys practice squad the same year and he's been in Tampa ever since. Carpenter has no attachments to the new staff in Tampa and was released earlier this week. We thought the Falcons might have taken a look at him because of his previous relationship with (Falcons OC) Dirk Koetter.

  Buccaneers | Rudy Carpenter waived     Wed Apr 4, 02:22 PM

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced Wednesday, April 4, that they have waived QB Rudy Carpenter.

Footballguys view: Carpenter has been with the team for a while now but the new staff didn't want to keep him around. His connection in college with Dirk Koetter at Arizona State could land him in Falcons' camp this summer.

  Buccaneers | Rudy Carpenter added to roster    Sat Dec 3, 04:40 PM

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed practice squad QB Rudy Carpenter to their active roster. In a corresponding move, the team waived LB Zac Diles.

Footballguys view: Signing Carpenter is a sign that starter Josh Freeman may not be able to play because of a shoulder injury. If Freeman is out then we'll see Josh Johnson get the start for the Bucs.

  Buccaneers | Practice squad announced    Mon Sep 5, 05:26 PM

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed OT Will Barker, SS Ahmad Black, QB Rudy Carpenter, TE Collin Franklin, WR Edward Gant, TE Daniel Hardy, RB Mossis Madu and LB Derrell Smith to their practice squad.

Footballguys view: Carpenter will stay around in Tampa as the team's developmental QB. They'll have movement behind Josh Freeman next year as Josh Johnson is expected to leave in free agency.

  Buccaneers | Want Rudy Carpenter on practice squad    Sat Sep 3, 03:59 PM

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have offered a spot on their practice squad to recently waived QB Rudy Carpenter. Carpenter, however, has not given the team an answer because other teams are expressing an interest in him.

Footballguys view: Carpenter wants a shot to at least be on an active roster, and we can't blame him in this QB poor league. If he impresses on the Bucs practice squad, he could be a backup there next year since Josh Johnson is a free agent.

  Buccaneers | Expected to cut Rudy Carpenter    Fri Sep 2, 01:14 PM

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are expected to release QB Rudy Carpenter and go with two quarterbacks on their final roster.

Footballguys view: The Bucs are facing backup Josh Johnson being in a contract year, so Carpenter must not have shown them what they needed to see to think of him as a future backup to Josh Freeman.

Footballguys view: With Arrelious Benn active over Stovall, a good special teamer, it's time to put him on your waiver wire watch list, because he should start by the end of the season.

RB Keon Lattimore (undisclosed) was waived injured.

Footballguys view: Stanback isn't a surprise cut, he struggled with injury his entire time in Dallas. He is a very talented player, and the former Washington Huskies quarterback is also a versatile player that could play a little Wildcat QB if necessary.

Nick Eatman, of DallasCowboys.com, reports Dallas Cowboys QB Rudy Carpenter (thumb) was limited during practice Tuesday, Aug. 4, because of a sprained thumb.

  Cowboys | R. Carpenter long shot to make team    Mon Jul 13, 04:45 PM

Tim MacMahon, of The Dallas Morning News, reports Dallas Morning News, reports Dallas Cowboys QB Rudy Carpenter is a long shot to make the final roster.

Footballguys view: Carpenter is nothing more than a camp arm at this point and will have a hard time making it on the practice squad. Tony Romo, Jon Kitna, and Stephen McGee are locks to make the team. The Cowboys are hoping they have the next Tony Romo in rookie Stephen McGee, but he will have to sit and develop as he learns the pro game and we shouldn't expect to see him on the field for a couple of seasons.

  Cowboys | Agree to terms with seven undrafted free agents    Mon Apr 27, 08:29 PM

Tim MacMahon, of The Dallas Morning News, reports the Dallas Cowboys have agreed to terms with undrafted rookie free agents WR Kevin Ogletree (Virginia), TE Jamar Hunt (Texas-El Paso), OG Travis Bright (Brigham Young), QB Rudy Carpenter (Arizona State), FB Asaph Schwapp (Notre Dame), OG Michael Turkovich (Notre Dame) and OG Greg Isdaner (West Virginia). Terms of the deals were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: WR Kevin Ogletree could develop into a nice backup receiver. Ogletree knows how to use his frame to shield defenders away from the ball, and has strong hands to secure passes quickly. Injuries are a major concern after battling through wrist and knee problems in college. QB Rudy Carpenter might make the team on the practice squad. Rudy is a tough competitor that played behind a leaky OL his for his entire Sun Devils career. He shows good accuracy when throwing deep passes, and can drop the ball "in the bucket" down the sideline. When pressured he can move and slide around in the pocket until he finds a throwing lane. His mechanics are poor, and he does not look off the defense. His velocity is inconsistent and his ball tends to sail when it doesn't need to.
