Stampede News: Alex Carter Signs On Dotted Line

Alex Carter Signs On Dotted Line

The Denver Broncos have reached an agreement with corner Alex Carter to remain a Bronco for the next 5 seasons.

Carter was drafted with the 51st overall pick in the 2019 draft by Denver and he has progressed through the secondary ranks of the team, playing behind both Janoris Jenkins and Kyle Fuller learning his trade.

In the 2020 season, he expanded his experience by becoming the team's primary kick returner, amassing 1,333 yards on 56 returns across the season. In the Broncos championship season, Carter won the starting position over Harry Diaz after Jenkins was traded to the Atlanta Falcon. His season was interrupted, though, when he was injured in week 1 of the season and did not return until week 12. He then returned as a starter and was a solid contributor to the team's Super Bowl run.

In 2021, with Kyle Fuller suffering a season-ending injury in the pre-season, Carter became the team's #1 corner. A role that same him grow in the position. However, by his own admission, his deflection-to-catches allowed ratio was too high for a true #1 corner position.

But the Broncos' front office obviously like what they see in Carter, as they have just inked in a 5-year deal reportedly worth over $40 million, a sign that the talented 26-year old has the faith of management. Combined with Fuller's trade to the Pittsburgh Steelers this off-season, it looks like Carter has the starting position locked in.

After the successful rookie season of Fernando Carrusco and the fact the Broncos hold the 2nd overall pick of the 2023 draft, many are wondering if Carter's partner-in-crime for next season will be Carrusco or a new draftee?
