Jacksonville Jaguars at Tampa Bay Buccaneers: 2015 Week 5 NFL Pick

Jacksonville Jaguars (1-3) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1-3) The Buccaneers are going into a bye here, but that’s not a good thing, as counterintuitive as that might seem.

Given the size of this deal, 17 million over 4 years with 4.2 million guaranteed, suggests that the Buccaneers view Carter as a starter and an every down player. I think that’s a mistake based on his career play. The Cowboys drafted Bruce Carter in the 2nd round in 2011 despite the fact that he tore his ACL late in his final collegiate season at North Carolina. Carter was limited...
