MIAMI, FL - The Miami Dolphins have signed linebacker Bobby Carpenter to an undisclosed contract.

The former number one draft choice had spent the 2010 training camp with the St. Louis Rams after being acquired from Dallas in a May trade that sent offensive tackle Alex Barron to the Cowboys.

Dallas made Carpenter the 18th overall selection in the 2005 NFL Draft and in four seasons with the Cowboys, he recorded 96 tackles and three and a half sacks over 58 games.

The Dolphins also released linebacker Charlie Anderson and signed linebackers Austin Spitler and Chris McCoy, defensive back Jonathon Amaya, defensive end Ryan Baker, guard Ray Feigna, tight end Nathan Overbay and wide receiver Julius Pruitt to the practice squad.
