Former Lion Bobby Carpenter Thanks Fans, Teammates For Support

On Thursday, linebacker Bobby Carpenter signed with the New England Patriots, ending his two-season stint in Detroit with the Lions. Carpenter joined the Lions during the 2010 season and was re-signed in 2011. This year, no deal happened with Carpenter in Detroit, but he found a very nice landing spot with the Patriots.

After signing with the Pats, Carpenter took to Twitter to thank fans and his former teammates for their support the past two seasons.

I was really hoping the Lions would bring Carpenter back. He fit very nicely in their defense as a backup and provided good depth.

Best of luck to him with the Patriots.
