With a top defense in the league and a multi-time MVP quarterback soon on his way to the roster, the confidence level throughout Florham Park is rising fast.
That includes a member of that said defense, who had himself a fine year in 2022 but has set even higher expectations for himself in 2023. Defensive back Michael Carter II took to Twitter recently to tell the world he is still underrated and that he will “be the next nickel in the league in 2023. The work will show.”
Still underrated… I’ll be the best nickel in the league in ‘23 the work is gonna show

Carter was good as a rookie and even better in his second season. The 2021 fifth-round pick out of Duke has played in all but two games since joining the league and took a major step forward in 2022, recording nine passes defended and two interceptions.
A lot of the focus, understandably, is on Sauce Gardner and D.J. Reed, but more fans should start knowing Carter’s soon as well. Carter hopes that is sooner rather than later.
