When speaking today with KOA radio, Carter said he liked linebacker because it puts him “close to the action.” “Linebacker is closer to the trenches”, he told Ryan Edwards and Andrew Mason Bradley Chubb Broncos Jersey , “I’m a trenches dude, I’m a front line guy.”Ryan Edwards pointed out that he was a pretty physical guy at safety and asked if that helps him translate his game to the inside. “Yeah, that definitely will help me. With the big ole linemen, gotta take them on, use my hands. But I’m already physical and I’m quicker than them. I’m gonna give em hell.”It sounds like Carter is excited about his new role, and ready to get out there and help his team at this new position. When asked what he was looking to do in Monday’s game against the 49ers he replied while smiling, “Make plaayss. Make plays and bring that energy.”Be watching for #20 out there on Monday.
