The 5-10, 240-pound Anderson has appeared in 39 games during his four-year career, catching nine passes for 67 yards and a touchdown. He was cut by the Cowboys this year after undergoing surgery for a torn meniscus.
In addition to his work on offense as a backup to starter Lousaka Polite, Anderson also figures to contribute on special teams.
It was in that role that Carpenter ended up losing his roster spot. He was victimized by a couple of blocked punts the last couple of games and eventually that was enough for the Dolphins.
