    Lee and Carter are interchangeable, in my opinion.

    I hear ya, but I personally believe Lee is the prototypical MLB and Carter the prototypical WILL. That being said, I'm very open to competition.

    Couldn't agree more. IMO, I'd play them both at the Will and Sam in TC just in case one goes down. Not 50/50 but enough snaps to get a feel. I'd rather play Albright or Lemon at Mike and move Lee to the Will if Carter is injured.

    I think Carter will be the WILL in this defense...

    That's exactly what I was thinking and what they're probably thinking.

    The burning question for me is what are they going to do at SAM.

    It will only take one crack at it for Lee to cement the starting MLB.

    I like lee but I think carter is gonna end being the player most think lee is or will be.

    It's a good problem to have though.

    All depends on how the player fits and how comfortable they get. Some people you can move around and others not. Even in the same scheme, coaches yada. Some of this may come down to who is the Sam. If Lee is the best Sam then you find a Mike.

    The 3rd LB could impact the position of Lee or Carter due to the fact that they can probably play any of he 3 spots.

    If a player like Ernie Sims is re-signed and becomes the leading candidate to be the 3rd LB, then he might be best at WLB. In this case, getting the 3 best on the field could have Carter at SLB.

    If a player like Albright is the best 3rd LB, then he would be the SLB and Carter would most likely be the WLB.

    the fact that we have two guys who could play both positions and excel is a luxury i'm happy we have

    i could see an advantage of using Carter at MLB due to his speed to run back in the Tampa 2 and cover the deep middle...but i think his speed and burst could make him ELITE at the WILL so that's where i'd put him

    and we've seen that Lee could excel anywhere and his anticipation and ability to read make him a stud at MLB

    either way though...two great players who i can't wait to see play together for a full season
