Jalen Carter earns new nickname from Eagles teammates after dominating during training camp
Throughout the entire offseason, Eagles players have been raving about Jalen Carter. He reportedly killed it during training camp, and now, Carter’s teammates have a new nickname for him.
Last week, Darius Slay called Carter “Baby Rhino” during an episode of his podcast.

Then, Brandon Graham brought up the nickname again when speaking with reporters.
“I’m loving the name Baby Rhino,” Graham said. “Because that boy is… He is a ram. And if you get it all the way in shape and be able to get it to go all the time, he’s definitely going to have people not wanting to see him every week.”
For a rookie defensive tackle who looks like he’s poised to dominate right out the gate, yeah, “Baby Rhino” fits the bill. The only issue with the nickname is, are we still going to call Jalen Carter “Baby Rhino” when he’s entering year eight in the league? For right now the nickname is solid, but it has to evolve as Carter’s career evolves.
Are we going to change it to “Adult Rhino” when Carter turns 30? You see the dilemma we have on our hands if we go through with this nickname, right?
If Carter dominates during his NFL career, he won’t need a nickname anyway. Everyone will just refer to him as “Future Hall of Famer Jalen Carter.” That has a better ring to it, too.
