Bruce Carter: "I Definitely Have a Lot to Prove"

Carter finished third on the team with 96 tackles last year but struggled with consistency



    Cowboys linebacker Bruce Carter has admitted that he struggled to transition from the 3-4 to the 4-3 a year ago, leaving him with plenty to prove in 2014. But he remains confident that he is capable of greatness.

    I definitely have a lot to prove to everybody, especially myself,” Carter said, per the Dallas Morning News. “I want to come out here and just get this thing moving in the right direction.”

    Carter showed flashes of great promise in his sophomore year in the league in 2012, after Sean Lee went down, but his season was cut short after he dislocated his elbow on Thanksgiving Day of that year. Last year, after transitioning to weakside linebacker, he finished third on the team with 96 tackles but struggled mightily with consistency.

    “I just want to be the best player I can be,” Carter said. “I have a lot of potential to be great. I don’t want to leave anything in the tank. I want to sell out and give my all.”
