Carter, 34, was released by the Raiders back in August after playing 13 games for them. In 2011, he tallied 10 sacks for the Patriots defense, so he’s at least familiar with their defensive scheme.
As of now, New England has Chandler Jones, Rob Ninkovich, Jake Bequette and rookie Michael Buchanan on their roster at the defensive end position, so we’ll have to see the Pats intend to get him involved at the expense of either Bequette or Buchanan’s playing time.
