Report: Oakland re-signs defensive end Andre Carter
Andre Carter turns 34 next month, but he can still rush the passer. Oakland re-signed the defensive end to a one-year deal, according to a report. Carter has 78.5 career sacks and posted 10 sacks as recently as 2011 with the Patriots.
ESPN’s Josina Anderson tweeted the news, which she got from Carter’s agent.
A situational pass rusher last season, Carter finished with 19 tackles, 2.5 sacks and a forced fumble in 12 games.
He tore his quad in Week 14 of 2011 with the Patriots -- a season in which he had 10 sacks and two forced fumbles -- and didn’t start playing for Oakland until Week 6 last year.
The Raiders ranked 31st with 25 sacks last season.
