Trade Rumor: Bobby Carpenter for Rams OT Alex Barron

PFT is reporting that there may be something to a rumor that has the Cowboys shipping ILB Bobby Carpenter to the Rams for restricted free agent OT Alex Barron.

There are contractual issues at play for both players that may need to get resolved.  Carpenter is entering the final year of his rookie contract.  Barron is a restricted free agent.

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

Interesting. This trade ought to satisfy many folks here at BTB. Not only would the Cowboys rid themselves of Carpenter, thus opening up room for Jason Williams and Sean Lee to grow; but, it would also add an experienced player at the offensive tackle position.

Sounds like a good deal to me, even though the article said Barron is a "false start machine".
