Michael Carter continues to be a tremendous source of positive energy in the New York Jets’ locker room
Carter, 23, has established himself as of the best personalities on the Jets’ roster since the team selected him in the fourth round of the 2021 NFL draft. His positive energy is infectious in Florham Park.
On Instagram, Jets rookie Jermaine Johnson shared a hilarious video of Carter singing to him in the locker room.
Sounds like Michael Carter should have a successful music career awaiting him post-NFL 😂 @8kMike

In addition to showing off some potential on the mic, Carter headed out to the bowling alley alongside kicker Eddy Pineiro to flash multi-sport potential.
Carter may need some polishing on his bowling game, though, as he only appears to knock down seven pins in the clip below. Pineiro upstages him with a strike while holding a phone in the other hand.

Perhaps we just caught Carter at the wrong time and he recorded a strike on every other ball he threw that day. We’ll cut him some slack due to the small sample size. But you cannot help but be impressed with the rep that Pineiro put on film.
Veteran safety Will Parks was also present at the team bowling outing. Parks says that head coach Robert Saleh won two out of two games. Parks also said that fellow safety Jordan Whitehead bowls “like Happy Gilmore”, the titular character from the 1996 comedy film played by Adam Sandler (who himself is a Jets fan).
We went bowling today. Immaculate timing. Coach Saleh won 2/2 games too. J Whitehead bowl like Happy Gilmore. Fun time today.

Whether that’s a compliment or a criticism, we may never know.
What we do know is that Michael Carter continues to be an immensely positive presence in the Jets’ locker room, doing his part in building a strong culture that can facilitate winning for years to come.
