Summary

One of the most interesting acquisitions of the offseason, Bruce Carter will reportedly play middle linebacker in Lovie Smith's scheme, a goldmine from an IDP perspective. Carter played off and on at strongside linebacker for Dallas last year, but injuries kept him from being overly effective. A new lease of life in Tampa could be exactly what he needs. Carter is an under-the-radar player right now but could rise to LB2 status. (April 27)
