    CHARLOTTE — The Panthers want to keep opponents guessing this year, and they also want to keep a few guys fresh, so they're going to need linebackers who can do more than one thing.

    Jermaine Carter believes that he began proving that he can be one of those guys last year, and that he can be an important part of the defense in the future.

    Carter made an impression on a new coaching staff which didn't know much about him, starting the final six games of the year. At first, that assignment was because of an injury to Tahir Whitehead, but Carter began to prove he was more than capable, playing solidly down the stretch and never giving the job back.

    "Early in the season, they'd throw me in there, and I'd get a couple of reps and show them what I could do," Carter said. "But I feel like they fully trusted me Week 11 against the Lions when I got my first start, and we shut them out. From that point on, I felt like the job was mine to lose. That was my attitude about it."
