    IRVING, Texas

    Bruce Carter was a member of the Dallas Cowboys in 2011.

    He just didn't feel like one.

    Recovery from knee surgery forced Carter to miss the first six games of his rookie season. When he returned, he barely touched the field as a linebacker. Carter was instead used almost exclusively on special teams.

    "It was definitely tough, especially not being able to play (defense) and coming in so late," Carter told FOXSports.com on Wednesday at team headquarters. "You just want to keep working, take mental reps and try and stay as focused as you can so when that time comes you'll be ready."
    That time has come — and Carter has proven more than ready.

    I just love our two ILB's. It's going to be a joy to watch them the next few years.

    Just wait until he "gets it". Right now he is thinking too much. When he really knows what to do look out. It's about freaking time!

    Lee is a 3 contract player, he's a lifer. If Carter can improve he may be too. We could be looking at 10-12 years of seeing them play together, not just a few years. :). I love when players stick their whole career on a team. Seeing Favre leave the Packers, Tomlinson leave the Chargers, Peyton leave the Colts.. It just feels wrong. I hope Brady never leaves the Patriots. I don't think he will leave the team. If he retires as a Patriot he will certainly have the most historic aura of any player from this era due to the one team aspect.

    He's just scratching the surface... He'll be even better in 2013.
