A surprise move here:
We've released RB Michael Carter.— New York Jets (@nyjets) November 14, 2023
Carter's best season was his rookie year and despite being a very popular teammate he never quite got back to those levels whether he was a backup or a third down back.
He had a costly penalty on Sunday night which might be an excuse for the coaching staff to send a message but hopefully it's not one that backfires due to his popularity.
Dalvin Cook might see an increased workload with rookie Izzy Abanikanda to start being active on gameday soon. It will be interesting to see if anyone picks up Carter but he reportedly had some teams interested in trading for him so there may be a market.
