Raiders bring in free agent DE Andre Carter for a workout

Andre Carter #93 of the New England Patriots looks on from the sideline in the second half against the New York Giants

After Raiders training camp practice today, free agent defensive end Andre Carter was spotted working out for the team. Head coach Dennis Allen confirmed it was indeed Carter adding "We're shaking all the bushes and see what falls out. And if we feel like we got something that can help us, we're gonna do it."

We tried to ask him a few questions but responded "I gotta stay low key. If it works out, God willing."

Carter has switched back and for between 3-4 outside linebacker and defensive end throughout his 11-year career with the 49ers, Redskins and Patriots. He made the Pro Bowl last season for the first time following a 10-sack season in New England. But he suffered a quad injury and the team didn't bring him back.

The veteran pass rusher would compete at outside linebacker as well as defensive end for the team. He would provide that pass rush threat that the team lost when they released Kamerion Wimbley this offseason.

This would be a homecoming of sorts for the former Cal Bear. He was taken seventh overall by the 49ers back in 2001 and played the first five seasons of his career there. He has 76 career sacks with four seasons with double digit sacks.
