Quinton Carter

Safety, 4th season

Quinton Carter was drafted by the Broncos in the fourth round back in 2011, and has been placed in IR each of the last two seasons. His career got off to a roaring start when he became a starter in the Broncos’ secondary on a revamped defense that made it to the playoffs where he picked off Super Bowl QBs Ben Roethlisberger and Tom Brady. Carter’s contributions to the Denver defense should be big in 2014 if he can stay on the field, where he belongs. This is a guy who has a complete game as a safety, whose talent has never been the question. Because of his time injured, it seems he’s a longshot to be a serious contributor in Denver but the feeling is that he can possibly even be the ’7th man’ in the secondary.
