After signing with the Cowboys on Tuesday, defensive lineman David Carter says he’ll be ready to play Sunday against the Rams if the team calls his number.
“Oh, yeah, that’s my job,” Carter said, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “That’s what they’re paying me here for. That’s what I’ve got to do.”
Carter was released by the Arizona Cardinals just before the season opened. He played against the Cowboys in the preseason as a member of the Cardinals, which makes one wonder if Dallas didn’t have an eye on him beginning then. Carter was one of six players to work out at Valley Ranch on Tuesday and was signed shortly thereafter, replacing Landon Cohen on the roster.
“We just like him, and our [personnel staff] tracks a lot of players,” head coach Jason Garrett said. “Guys on rosters, guys on practice squads and guys on the street. You're always trying to upgrade your football team. I think our guys do a really good job of that when there's an opportunity to upgrade or bring a guy in to see where he is. To see if he can possibly upgrade [your team] you want to take advantage of that.”
