    Bobby Carpenter, a former first round pick of the Dallas Cowboys, has found a new team.

    The New England Patriots announced last week that they had signed Carpenter to a deal, though the details of the agreement haven’t been disclosed just yet.

    Carpenter was drafted with the 18th overall pick back in 2006 and spent four seasons with Dallas before departing for St. Louis in 2010, in exchange for fellow forgettable-first rounder, Alex Barron. St. Louis parted ways with Carpenter after training camp though, and from there he reunited with Bill Parcells in Miami.

    Carpenter’s stay in Miami lasted just five games, after which he was cut and picked up by the Detroit Lions, where he’s been ever since. He played in all 16 games for Detroit in 2011, including that matchup with Dallas, where he provided one of the two pick-sixes (his first career interception) that helped cement the Cowboys’ meltdown.
