JetsInsider.com has learned that the Jets on Wednesday hosted former Cowboys and Bucs ILB Bruce Carter.
Carter (6'3 -235 Lbs), entering his sixth season in the NFL played his first four years with the Cowboys where he was a 2nd round pick in 2011 and was signed to $17MM contract by Tampa last year as a free agent. It obviously was not a good fit as he didn't even crack the starting lineup and was cut after just one season. Overall, Carter in 5 seasons has 289 tackles, 5 sacks and 5 INT's.
The Jets are looking to increase depth at LB after losing Demario Davis. They recently re-signed LB Erin Henderson who is expected to replace Davis but are looking for more able bodies to compete.
Carter left the Jets without signing a contract and is reportedly visiting the Lions today.
