I think this is James Carpenter's prove it year. His contract is guaranteed thru this year. But, next year .... his fourth year .... there are no guarantees.
James has 21 NFL starts and has played in 23 games. Unfortunately, one would be hard pressed to argue that his body of work, to date, warrants consideration for anything significant in the way of a second multi-year contract. However, with any luck, that outlook could change as the year continues to unfold. It's really up to Carpenter.
For anyone who might be inclined to think that Cable's interest in less mobile but very powerful specialists is waning, I think of the recent addition of Zach Allen to the practice squad as a contrary indicator.
