Carter was undrafted in 2017 and has been with the Bengals since then (although he did not play in the 2018 season due to being on IR with a shoulder injury). He is 25 years old and has 7 career receptions for 66 yards and 1 touchdown since 2017 and has started 5 games in his career.
Carter will be part of a deep Dolphins tight end room and compete for playing time with Durham Smythe and Adam Shaheen behind Mike Gesicki while also helping out in the running game being a lead blocker who can line up in the back-field as well as assist on special teams.
