7 NY Giants who will be playing elsewhere in 2022
LB – Lorenzo Carter
In some ways Lorenzo Carter has been a disappointment as he has yet to reach his lofty potential coming out of Georgia as a third-round pick, and in others it is fair to wonder just how much of that potential was robbed by a ruptured Achilles he suffered last season.
Regardless, Carter has been virtually nonexistent in the NY Giants’ front seven this season.
Through the fist nine weeks, Carter hasn’t produced a sack, has logged just 20 total tackles. Perhaps more disappointing is the fact that Carter has provided next to nothing as a pass-rusher, with just eight total pressures.
For much of the Dave Gettleman’s tenure, the NY Giants have attempted to cobble together a pass-rush composed primarily of mid-round draft picks and bargain free agents. Carter’s failures underscore the risks of such a philosophy.
