    Chris Carter Starting??

    Why is he even on this team.
    He has nothing and it's obvious

    Jarvis Jones is injured...that's why. Also, might as well get a better look at those other linebackers that are trying to make the cut.
    R1- T.J. Watt, OLB; Wisconsin
    R2- JuJu Smith-Schuster, WR; USC
    R3- Cameron Sutton, CB; Tennessee
    R3- James Conner, RB; Pittsburgh
    R4- Josh Dobbs, QB; Tennessee
    R5- Brian Allen, CB; Utah
    R6-
    R7-

    I understand JJ is injured but Chris Carter is non existent .... always has been. Why can't the staff see he has nothing. Moats isn't a true pass rushing OLB but he's far better than Carter.

    Maybe they just confirmed his future as a cut victim by giving him the start?

    Carter only lasted one series with the starters before being replaced by Arthur Moats after he lost contain on a pass rush that allowed E.J. Manuel to scramble for a 5-yard gain.

    I think Chris Carter's days as a Pittsburgh Steeler are numbered...

    On the latest depth chart Moats is listed as the #2 ROLB backing up JJ. On an earlier depth chart he was #2 backing up Worilds. I believe he is considered the #1 BU if needed on both sides.

    Anyway, someone posted Carter's actual production since he has been here. Is this his 4th year? It seems he has played not a lot but has seen a bit of playing time. Anyway the line was Zero sacks [that floored me] and just a handful of tackles. Not exactly a ball of fire when in there.

    Showcase. We wouldn't mind a tire kicker.
