Opinion90 Players in 90 Days2019 Buffalo Bills scouting report: tight end Kyle CarterNew Devin Singletary NFL Jersey ,2commentsThe injury fill-in will try to make the most of his opportunitiesEDTThe Buffalo Bills are dealing with plenty of injuries at the tight-end position. Free-agent acquisition Tyler Kroft broke his foot during OTAs, so he has yet to participate in any mandatory team activities while recovering from surgery to repair the injury. Jason Croom and Dawson Knox have each dealt with hamstring strains. Where there were once seven healthy players, the team has had to scramble to add bodies.One of the players added is a young man who spent some time on the team’s practice squad during the 2018 season. In our latest installment of our “90 players in 90 days” series, we profile that young tight end.<hr class="p-entry-hr" id="QFPW0L">Name: Kyle CarterNumber: 48Position: TEHeight/Weight: 6’3” 245 Age: 26 (27 on 12/17/19)Experience/Draft: Signed as UDFA with Minnesota Vikings following the 2016 NFL DraftCollege: Penn StateAcquired: Signed with Bills on 7/29/19<hr class="p-entry-hr" id="Z6ArzD">Financial situation (per Over the Cap): Carter’s contract is a one-year deal that totals $570,000. That will be his cap hit if he makes the team out of camp. If the Bills cut him, they won’t suffer any cap penalty, as there is no guaranteed money in the deal.2018 Recap: Carter spent time with three different organizations last season. He began 2018 with the New York Giants, who waived him on July 25. The Seahawks claimed him off waivers two days later, and he remained with the team for the duration of the preseason. Seattle cut him on September 1, and he remained without a team until Buffalo signed him to the practice squad on December 12. The Bills released him at the end of the season. During the 2018 preseason, he was targeted three times, and he made his one reception count—it was a ten-yard touchdown grab.Positional outlook: Carter is holding a roster spot while the three injured amigos mentioned at the beginning of this report heal. Other than Kroft, Croom, and Knox, Carter has Tommy Sweeney, Lee Smith, Keith Towbridge, and Nate Becker to contend with for a roster spot.2019 Offseason: Carter has participated in camp since signing with the team.2019 Season outlook: Carter has little chance of making the final roster, as his presence is really meant to buy time for the injured parties to heal. If he plays well Devin Singletary NFL Draft , perhaps he can earn a greater role, but it’s more likely that he’ll be searching for work once Croom and Knox are able to participate. Welcome back, Buffalo. You, too, Jacksonville and Tennessee. It’s been a while, Los Angeles. The NFL playoffs open this weekend with a few teams – and cities – that have been merely spectators in January for years. The Bills (9-7) are, of course, the poster boys of postseason dreaming, earning their first playoff appearance since 1999 and ending a 17-year absence that was the longest for any team in the four major North American sports leagues. ”It definitely was a goal of ours, but it doesn’t just stop here,” quarterback Tyrod Taylor said. ”We’re excited to be in this position and we have a great opportunity in front of us.” They also have the Jaguars (10-6) standing in their way. Jacksonville is in the playoffs for the first time since the 2007 season, and won its first division title since 1999. The Bills also will see a familiar face Sunday leading the other sideline in coach Doug Marrone, who was Buffalo’s head coach from 2013-14. ”For me, obviously the past is past,” Marrone said. ”They have earned it as well as we have earned it. My focus obviously is going to be on our football team. It’s as easy as that for me.” Football fans in Los Angeles haven’t been able to watch a home team in the postseason since the Raiders beat Denver on Jan. 9, 1994, at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum – site of Saturday night’s showdown between the Rams (11-5) and the defending NFC champion Atlanta Falcons (10-6). The Rams haven’t hosted a playoff game since 1986, before 31-year-old coach Sean McVay was even born. McVay is now the youngest coach to make the postseason. ”Until you take a step back (to see) what this team has done such a nice job with, you can’t fully appreciate the journey Devin Singletary Buffalo Bills Jersey ,” McVay said. ”You try to, every now and then, enjoy it and not get so caught up in the moment that you can’t enjoy the experiences as you’re going on that journey.” The Titans (9-7) last made the playoffs back in the 2008 season , when Jeff Fisher was coach. Nine years later, it’ll be coach Mike Mularkey and quarterback Marcus Mariota leading Tennessee into Kansas City on Saturday against Andy Reid’s playoff-tested Chiefs (10-6). ”It’s been a long time coming,” tight end Delanie Walker said. ”We thought that at the beginning: if we get in, we can go all the way. That’s our mindset and that’s how we’re going to play.” Tennessee at Kansas City The Titans lost three in a row before beating Jacksonville in their regular-season finale to get into the playoffs. Now, they’ll try to win their first postseason game since beating Baltimore on Jan. 3, 2004. Tennessee allowed only 88.8 yards rushing per game, but will have a tough task against Chiefs rookie Kareem Hunt, who led the NFL with 1,327 yards on the ground. Kansas City has won four straight after a four-game skid that put their playoff hopes in doubt. But the Chiefs haven’t won a postseason game at home since topping Pittsburgh in January 1994. ”We completed the first step and now it’s on to the second one, which is winning this game,” quarterback Alex Smith said. ”It’s tough to add any more motivation with historic streaks or things like that.” Atlanta at Los Angeles The Rams have been one of the NFL’s best stories all season, with McVay leading an impressive turnaround – in the standings and with quarterback Jared Goff. The franchise’s return to Los Angeles last year was hardly a happy homecoming with a 4-12 record, but things certainly changed in a hurry. Goff went from being a somewhat disappointing No. 1 overall pick to leading the league’s No. 1 scoring offense. Running back Todd Gurley’s re-emergence as one of the NFL’s most dynamic and dangerous players has certainly been key. He finished second in the league with 1,305 yards rushing and had an NFL-leading 13 TD runs to go along with six TD receptions. While this is all new for the Rams, Dan Quinn’s Falcons will lean on their experience with Matt Ryan, Julio Jones and Co. trying to make a second straight run to the Super Bowl. ”We’ve been tested Color Rush Devin Singletary Jersey ,” Quinn said. ”I thought we’ve come through the fires to the other side together as one brotherhood. We’re battle ready.” Buffalo at Jacksonville After lengthy playoff droughts, one thing is for sure: either the Bills or Jaguars will get at least as far as the second round. This is the first time since 1999 that Jacksonville is hosting a postseason game, and fans are fired up. Tickets went quickly and the team received permission to remove tarps covering four sections of seats in the upper deck to create 3,501 additional seats at EverBank Field. ”It’s good for both organizations,” said Jaguars linebacker Paul Posluszny, who spent his first four seasons with the Bills. ”It’s good for the NFL to have two teams that haven’t been to the playoffs in a long time to have the opportunity to play.” The Jaguars had the second-ranked overall defense in the league, with a ferocious pass rush that produced a franchise-record 55 sacks. Taylor and the Bills might have to try to make things happen against that unit without running back LeSean McCoy, who was considered day to day after being carted off the field last Sunday against Miami with an injured right ankle. ”This team thrives off adversity,” Bills guard Richie Incognito said. ”It thrives off negative situations. It thrives off everyone picking against us. So we have everything going our way.” Carolina (11-5) at New Orleans (11-5) Two familiar foes cap wild-card weekend as Cam Newton’s Panthers take on Drew Brees’ Saints for the third time this season. New Orleans won the previous two meetings, with the victories bookending an 8-1 stretch for the Saints en route to the NFC South title. This time around, the Panthers will have tight end Greg Olsen, who missed the earlier matchups because of a foot injury. ”You’re talking about one of the better tight ends in the game,” Saints coach Sean Payton said. ”Not having him is significant and having him is huge.” New Orleans has arguably the best duo of playmaking running backs in the game, and could give even Carolina’s third-ranked run defense some fits. Mark Ingram (141 yards, one TD) and Alvin Kamara (97 yards, three TDs) combined for 238 yards rushing in the two previous games against the Panthers. They also each had eight receptions in those two meetings. ”We’ve got to account for both guys,” Panthers coach Ron Rivera said. ”They are putting both guys on the field at the same time now, so they can pretty much do anything with those two backs.” —
