    IRVING — Much has been made of the upgrades the Dallas Cowboys made to their secondary in the offseason.

    But the addition of cornerbacks Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne isn't the only reason the Cowboys appear poised to improve on last season's middle-of-the-pack defensive ranking.

    With aging plodders Keith Brooking and Bradie James sent packing, defensive coordinator Rob Ryan has turned to speedy second-year pro Bruce Carter to team with tenacious Sean Lee at inside linebacker. While not as publicized as the makeover of the secondary, the addition of Carter is a personnel boost owner Jerry Jones believes has changed the look of the entire unit.

    “We are faster,” Jones said last week while discussing the team's 24-17 win over the New York Giants on his radio show. “There's no question when you look at No. 54, Carter, out there. He's the fastest inside linebacker in the NFL, maybe the fastest linebacker, period.

    I think that Carter is going to have a "spy" role when we play the Eagles and Redskins

    No one will say Pat is the fastest, they will say he is the quickest though. I've only seen 1 other linebacker move sideline to sideline like he does and thats a young Ray Lewis

    IIRC, Pat Willis ran an unbelievable forty time at his pro-day.

    I think Kendricks from Philly is awfully fast too.

    Carter is an amazing athlete though. If he begins to "get it" then we have the makings of a very scary LB corps.

    I'm not sure if Carter is as fast as Dexter Coakley was though. :)

    I like that, though I don't think Lee is so slow that they can't use one or the other at different times depending on coverage, formations, etc.

    He's probably faster than Carter, dude's a monster.
