Default Re: Come one come all---But Tim Carter?

I could see him sticking as the 5th guy myself. I mean is David Anderson untouchable or something?

Let's see?

Speed - Carter
Size - Carter
Experience - Carter
Return ability - Carter
Hands - almost definetely Anderson
Route Running - ???
Coverage teams - Guessing Anderson, but not sure

I don't see the downside myself. I really don't understand why the naysayers always come out when we sign these borderline guys, and they start trashing the signing before they even see the guy. If they bomb, so what? What's the possible downside? What, you don't like them wasting a number or something? Is there not enough oxygen in Houston to go around? Did they steal your girlfriend? I don't get it. Obviousely, the guy has some ability and talent. He wouldn't have been a 2nd rounder otherwise. Has he lived up to that? No, but neither had Andre Davis when we scooped him up off the scrap heap last year. The parallels between these two guys is almost scary. Personally, I'll hold my opinion until I actually see the guy play.

Edit - You know what, I forgot. Is Carter a smaller guy? Anderson actually may have the size advantage. Anyone know?

I was beginning to agree with your points up until the oxygen argument........


BTW:
Anderson 5'10"
Carter 6'0"

You feel for the guy and pull for him to make it... but...

Too many major injuries throughout his career and this red flag:

It seems to me that WR speedsters with a track background tend to have an unusual history of NFL injuries:

Quote:
Carter brought great speed and athleticism to the Giants, but his production was curtailed largely because of injuries. As a rookie in 2002, he was limited to five games because of a rib injury suffered in training camp and a torn Achilles tendon. The following season, Carter caught a career-high 26 passes despite missing four games with concussions.

In 2004, Carter was again limited to five games because of a hip injury suffered at Dallas. A year later, he missed the regular season finale and the NFC Wild Card Game with a hip injury. Carter played in all 16 games with eight starts in 2006. He had season-high totals of four catches against Washington on Oct. 8 and Philadelphia on Dec. 17.

Default Re: Come one come all---But Tim Carter?

My guess would be that, with A.J. missing the entire month of OTAs, that Kubiak and Co. wanted a speedy guy out there to test the defense. I can fathom Tim Carter working his way into our depth chart at WR, which is easily our deepest position.
