Steelers LB Chris Carter Enters Third Season Surrounded By Question Marks

For the first three games of the 2012 season, the Pittsburgh Steelers were forced to start linebacker Chris Carter on the right side due to both James Harrison and Jason Worilds not being fully healthy. It was a golden opportunity for the 2011 fifth-round draft pick out of Fresno State, but unfortunately not one that he took good advantage of.

Pittsburgh Steelers Training Camp Competition: OLBs Jason Worilds vs. Chris Carter


Steelers OLB Chris Carter had a chance to get some real looks this offseason in OTAs and minicamp due to back-up Jason Worilds' wrist surgery.

Worilds would have had those looks due to starter James Harrison's back issues holding him out for a little bit.

Neither of those injuries appear to be long-term issues, but they seem to be happening often enough now the Steelers may want to explore some long-term depth at the position.

That's where Carter comes in.

Although he looked, frankly, lost in his limited time last season, he showed a burst off the snap that could prove useful as he continues to grow as a player. He doesn't have the size (6-foot-1, 248) Worilds (6-foot-2, 262) does, but he looked more aggressive per-snap.

Neither looked particularly great against the run, but to their credit, they are both young players still learning the defense.

And learn quickly, they must. Harrison missed four games last year, and OLB LaMarr Woodley essentially missed eight. Their lack of field time produced just 35 sacks, which was 17th in the NFL, down from the 48 they produced the previous season.

Maybe it's a shot across the bow of the younger players, but the Steelers brought in former Bengals inside/middle linebacker Brandon Johnson and moved him outside. Perhaps Johnson will serve as a lead horse to contend with Worilds and handle special teams duties, but with Worilds' surgery, if Carter is to have a chance to compete for snaps, this training camp will be his best opportunity.

Pittsburgh Steelers work out former Patriot Markell Carter

*** Discuss this article and more at our Pittsburgh Steelers forum ***

Per a league source, the Pittsburgh Steelers are working out former New England Patriots outside linebacker/defensive end Markell Carter.
Carter, a second year OL/DE out of Central Arkansas, didn't quite pan out in New England it seems. He spent all of last season on the practice squad and was released by the Patriots earlier this month.
He was the highest-paid player on the practice squad, receiving a number of practice player of the week honors, which meant that New England thought he had a lot of potential. Hard to tell why the Patriots released him, but he does have some raw talent that could be developed in Pittsburgh.
