* Versatile linebacker who has the size and speed to be an effective run stopper and pass rusher while also displaying the ability to cover backs or tight ends in the passing game.
* Also a strong special teams performer throughout his career.

2011: Carpenter was signed as a free agent by the Detroit Lions on October 20, 2010.

On October 2, 2011, Carpenter had six tackles, a pass deflected and made the play of the game, returning an interception for a touchdown, which sparked a second half come-from-behind victory against his former team, the Dallas Cowboys. The 24-point collapse was Dallas' largest blown lead in team history and eventually cost them a chance to qualify for the post-season.

2012: On April 5, 2012, Carpenter was signed as a free agent by the New England Patriots. He was among the team's final pre-season cuts on September 1. After fellow linebacker Dont'a Hightower suffered a hamstring injury, the Patriots re-signed Carpenter on October 3. He was released on October 31 after playing in four games for New England, mostly on special teams while registering two special teams tackles.
