The defensive highlight of the afternoon practice came from linebacker Bruce Carter, who stepped in front of a Tony Romo pass during a red-zone drill and was headed for a pick-six when the play was blown dead.
It was the type of play coaches have been expecting to see from Carter since he was taken in the second round of the 2011 draft. But the North Carolina product was limited to 10 games last season (no starts) because of a knee injury that lingered from his college days.
“I’m just trying to show the coaches I can play. To compete as much as I can. I’m a playmaker,” Carter said.
What happened on the interception?
“Just a basic drop and I read where Tony’s eyes were going and the ball fell in my lap,” Carter said.
