DE Andre Carter returns to Raiders

USA TODAY Sports

Andre Carter's agent has told ESPN's Josina Anderson that his client has re-signed with the team.

One of the better player signings late last season for the Raiders was that of defensive end Andre Carter. Bringing him back seemed to be a very good possibility. Now reports say that Carter has re-signed with the team on a 1-year deal.

The 33-year-old veteran defensive end has played much of his football career in the Bay Area. He was drafted by the 49ers out of Cal and spent five years in San Francisco. He then spent the next six years on the East Coast with the Redskins and Patriots before making his return home with the Raiders midway through last season.

He has put up good sack numbers in his career but made his first Pro Bowl in 2011 after posting 10.0 sacks in 14 games. He left late in the season with a torn quad muscle. He worked out for the team in training camp but his recovery from the injury last into the 2012 season but once week six came around, the Raiders cleared a roster spot and brought him onboard.

He steadily got better and by the end of the season, his outside rush making an impact on the Raiders' suddenly solid defense. His veteran presence and pass rush abilities are much needed on this Raiders team.
