The days of Cethan Carter could be coming to an end with the Miami Dolphins. He simply could be a numbers casualty.

After three seasons with the Bengals, Carter joined the Dolphins ahead of the 2021 season. In his single season with Miami, Carter started one game out of the 16 he was in. He registered two receptions for 16 yards but Carter has never been a primary pass-catching option. In fact, his most productive season in the passing game came in 2020 when he caught five passes for 53 yards. He has one touchdown in his entire NFL career.

Carter’s best game is blocking and that might be where he has a chance to make this year’s roster. Still, it is going to be tough for him to find a footing in camp. He is simply lower on the unit than others and his game is not well-rounded considering he is primarily a blocker.

If the Dolphins release Carter, he is likely going to find a spot on another team’s roster. He has talent and has something to offer but for the Dolphins, there are simply better TEs on the roster ahead of him.
