Duron Carter’s stint in the NFL didn’t last very long, but he’s doing his best to make it back into the league.
He’ll likely have the attention of scouts following a highlight-reel catch in Saturday’s game against Toronto. He was given a jump ball scenario in the endzone, and extended his arm out to make a ridiculous grab around his back. Just take a look for youself.
They’ve got a lot of speed. We have two really good, smart veteran safeties (in Glover Quin and Tavon Wilson) that help guys get lined up. Obviously, (Darius) Slay is doing a really good job at corner. Some young linebackers … the kid stepping in (Jarrad Davis) has been really impressive. J.D.’s not even just as a football player but as a human being, teammate, leader, he’s doing a great job putting the work in and is really dialed in at practice.
And the guys up front, man, they get off the ball. That’s what they do around here you hear our d-line coach (Kris Kocurek) screaming at them to get off the ball and they do. They’re doing a nice job with twisting, stunting, getting into the backfield and making some plays.
Your team was so clutch last year, coming from behind in the fourth quarter to win eight games. Can some of that confidence in being able to overcome adversity carry over to a new season?
We have a lot of confidence in ourselves and our coaching staff that we have a great plan and we’re gonna do the right thing, that we’ve got guys that can make those plays. But shoot, we’d love to be up by 10 points in the fourth quarter and be getting that ball to Ameer, Theo and Zach and running the clock out. That’s our goal — to be in a better position at the end of games.
