DMN: Eagles aware of Bobby Carpenter

Gerry Fraley/Reporter

The recent productive play by Dallas Cowboys linebacker Bobby Carpenter caught the attention of Philadelphia offensive coordinator Marty Morhinweg.

``He's very good,'' Morhinweg said. ``He's made a couple of real good tackles with a blocker right there. He's playing at a high level, and they are putting him in situations that are his strength.''

Carpenter, credited with participating in eight tackles and one sack in the last two games, plays primarily in the pass-coverage sub-package. He has played a large role in limiting top-shelf tight ends in the last two games. Atlanta's Tony Gonzalez and Seattle's John Carlson combined for only seven catches.
