Michael Carter talks fresh start with Arizona Cardinals

It’s been quite the week for former UNC running back Michael Carter, who was released by the New York Jets before finding his new home with the Arizona Cardinals in less than 48 hours.

The stunning departure from the Jets created a whirlwind of speculation as Carter was seen as a locker-room favorite among players. What made the situation even more bizarre was the timing of the release, coming on the heels of a team meeting where it was reported that the players let out their frustration on the offensive struggles.

Well, we are now getting more insight into what could’ve caused the release, with Carter opening up about the departure while talking with Cardinals media.

It will be good to see Carter with a new opportunity to shine. Despite being a talented running back with fresh legs, New York had a logged jam at the running back position.
