The particular No . 56 is currently worn simply by Carolina Panthers linebacker Jermaine Billings. Here's a look at Carter and his potential contribution in Carolina for the 2019 season.
Jermaine Billings Bio
The Panthers drafted Carter in the fifth round of the 2018 NFL draft. He made the 53-man roster and served on special teams and as the back-up linebacker. This was not an unforeseen development for Carter. The Panthers always look for linebackers that can assist in both those roles.
Carter performed in all 16 games, starting a single in place of the injured Shaq Thomspon in Week 16. He tallied 11 tackles on the season and a something quarterback pressure.
It's hard to forecast what Carter's contribution will be within 2018. There is always the chance he would not make the roster through his chances seem good given the modifications in our offseason. Gone are former back-ups David Mayo and Ben John. This should increase Carter's chances of adhering and possibly lead to an increased role. The particular likely scenario is he acts in a similar role as 2018. He may need to put on a few pounds to try out on the inside in a 3-4 if which is where he is needed.
