Giants’ 90-man roster: Is Lorenzo Carter ready for the next step?

The last time the Giants had a defender manage to post double-digit sacks was in 2014 when Jason Pierre-Paul recorded 12.5 sacks.

To put that accomplishment in perspective, the Giants have since had three head coaches (Ben McAdoo, Steve Spagnuolo, and Pat Shurmur) and two defensive coordinators (Spagnuolo and James Bettcher).

That’s a mighty long dry spell for a defensive unit that claims to pride itself on being aggressive in getting after the quarterback.

This year with an improved defensive secondary on board to hopefully hold the coverage better, there is hope that the Giants will not only be in the top half of the league in sacks but will have one of their young players, such as second-year man Lorenzo Carter, emerge as a double-digit sack artist.
