  • Chargers' DeAndre Carter: Headed to LA

    Carter signed with the Chargers on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Carter recorded a career-best 24 receptions for 296 yards and three touchdowns in 2021 as a member of the Washington Commanders. Now joining a wide receiver corps that already boasts Keenan Allen and Mike Williams among others, Carter isn't likely to improve upon -- or perhaps even repeat -- those marks. However, his primary value will come from his work in the return game, as he has proven to be both a valuable kick and punt returner throughout his professional career.

  • Football Team's DeAndre Carter: Enjoys solid, versatile campaign

    Carter played all 17 games fo Washington in 2021, catching 24 of 44 targets for 296 yards and three touchdowns, and adding 16 punt returns for 134 yards and 36 kickoff returns for 904 yards and a fourth TD.

    Carter bounced around from Houston to Philadelphia to Chicago from 2018-20, with this being just the second time he's spent the full season with one team. He even had a stretch as Washington's No. 2 receiver, which lasted about a month and a half before he moved back to a special-teams and reserve role over the final few weeks of the season. Carter is a late bloomer who made his first regular-season NFL appearance at 25, and he'll turn 29 in April about a month after he's scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent. If nothing else, Carter should draw interest as a return specialist and No. 4/5 receiver.

  • Football Team's DeAndre Carter: Loses starting job

    Carter played only 22 percent of snaps in Sunday's 56-14 loss to Dallas, catching one of two targets for five yards.

    Carter has dropped back to being part of a rotation the past two weeks, following seven straight games in which he topped 50 percent snaps share. It'll likely be a mix of him, Adam Humphries, Cam Sims, Dyami Brown and Dax Milne splitting snaps behind No. 1 receiver Terry McLaurin over the final two weeks of the season.

  • Football Team's DeAndre Carter: Three touches in loss

    Carter secured two of three targets for 12 yards and carried once for 12 yards in Tuesday's 27-17 loss to Philadelphia.

    Carter has now had at least three targets in six of the last seven games, but he's totaled just 30 receiving yards across the last three weeks. He struggled with efficiency once again Tuesday with the newly signed Garrett Gilbert under center and ranked seventh on the team in receiving yards. Across his last seven appearances, the 28-year-old has hauled in 17 of 30 targets for 201 yards and three touchdowns while rushing four times for 17 yards.

  • Football Team's DeAndre Carter: Washington-Eagles moved to Tuesday

    Carter and Washington will no longer play the Eagles on Sunday, after the NFL officially rescheduled the matchup between the two teams for Tuesday at 7 p.m. ET.

    Due to ongoing COVID-19-related issues within Washington's organization, the NFL is hopeful that by delaying the game two days, the Football Team will restore enough players from the reserve/COVID-19 list to alleviate depth concerns on the roster.

  • Football Team's DeAndre Carter: Targeted five times in loss

    Carter caught two of his five targets for 12 yards during Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Cowboys.

    After a four-game stretch that saw Carter catch 12 of 20 targets for 171 yards and three touchdowns, the speedy wideout has only caught three passes for 18 yards over his last two games. The good news is that Carter saw five targets Sunday, his fifth game with at least five targets this season. However, the overall production wasn't there, as Taylor Heinicke and Kyle Allen both struggled to complete passes against Dallas' improved secondary. With Terry McLaurin in concussion protocols, Carter may be operating as the No. 1 wideout against the Eagles in Week 15.

  • Football Team's DeAndre Carter: Targeted once

    Carter caught his lone target for six yards in Sunday's 17-15 win over the Raiders, playing 49 of 67 snaps (73 percent) on offense.

    It was Carter's fourth start in the past five games, with a snap share in the 67-75 percent range in all five. Curtis Samuel has returned in a limited role, but that hasn't impacted Carter's snap or route shares. Even so, the journeyman speedster nonetheless came up short in the production department Sunday after catching 12 of 20 targets for 171 yards and three TDs over the past four games. Carter's likely done enough to keep his spot for Week 14 against Dallas, but another quiet outing could have him looking over his shoulder at Samuel or third-round rookie Dyami Brown.

  • Football Team's DeAndre Carter: Extends touchdown streak

    Carter caught two of three targets for 22 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-21 win over the Panthers. He also rushed once but lost three yards.

    Carter's touchdown streak was brought to three straight games thanks to his four-yard score during the third quarter. Although Carter couldn't reach 50 yards like in the two games prior, his end-zone trip nonetheless made for an impactful day. The wideout will strive to keep his scoring stretch going in Week 12 versus the Seahawks.

  • Football Team's DeAndre Carter: Records another TD in win

    Carter brought in three of six targets for 56 yards and a touchdown, rushed once for four yards, returned one punt for 10 yards and ran back two kickoffs for 47 yards in Washington's 29-19 win over the Buccaneers on Sunday.

    The speedster was productive in multiple roles again Sunday, and his 20-yard touchdown grab early in the second quarter extended Washington's early lead to 13-0. Carter has seemingly begun to carve out a role for himself on offense during the extended absence of Curtis Samuel (groin), as he now has multiple receptions and a receiving touchdown in back-to-back games. The undrafted Sacramento State product is an intriguing option, particularly in formats that count return yards, going into a Week 11 road matchup versus the Panthers.

  • Football Team's DeAndre Carter: Finds end zone in loss

    Carter caught three of six targets for 51 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 17-10 loss to the Broncos.

    The Washington passing game didn't have a whole lot of success on the afternoon, with running back J.D. McKissic being Taylor Heinicke's most effective option, but Carter led the wide receivers in yards and scored the team's only TD on a 20-yard grab in the third quarter. It was only the second time this season the 28-year-old has seen more than one target in a game this season, and Carter's role could shrink again coming out of a Week 9 bye if the likes of Curtis Samuel (groin) use the extra time off to get healthy.

  • Football Team's DeAndre Carter: Productive in Sunday's loss

    Carter caught four of eight targets for 62 yards in Sunday's 33-22 loss to the Saints. He also gained 11 yards on his lone carry.

    Pressed into a larger role in the offense with Dyami Brown (knee) and Cam Sims (hamstring) both out of action, Carter became even more important for Washington when Curtis Samuel left the game with a groin injury. Carter came into the week with only one catch on the year, but he could be poised for another productive effort in Week 6 against Kansas City.

  • Football Team's DeAndre Carter: Could see bump in playing time

    Coach Ron Rivera said Carter will get more playing time on offense Sunday against the Saints, John Keim of reports.

    The absences of Dyami Brown (knee) and Cam Sims (hamstring), coupled with uncertainty over the health of Curtis Samuel (groin), should open up more opportunities for Carter behind Terry McLaurin and Adam Humphries. Though Carter has previously struggled to make much of an impact in the NFL, he's off to a strong start this season in a special teams capacity, as he was named NFC special teams player of the week after scoring a 101-yard kickoff return touchdown against the Falcons. Now, the 28-year-old wide receiver could get more opportunities to utilize his shiftiness on offense while still maintaining a prominent special teams role.

  • Football Team's DeAndre Carter: Manages return TD

    Carter secured his only target for 24 yards during Sunday's 34-30 win over the Falcons. He also racked up 152 kick return yards, including a touchdown.

    Carter was named NFC special teams player of the week for his performance in Washington's narrow win over Atlanta. His highlight play came on the opening kick return of the second half, which he converted into a 101 yard return and score. On the season, Carter is averaging 27.8 yards per kick return and 9.3 yards per punt return.
