Free agent defensive end Andre Carter is drawing interest from several NFL teams.
Prior to joining the Patriots, Carter spent five seasons with the Washington Redskins, following five seasons with the San Francisco 49ers. He can play both defensive end and outside linebacker. Oakland is in need of pass rushing help, and could plug the 11-year veteran into the rotation for their 3-4 defense.
Carter's recovery from his quad injury will be key. If he can assure teams that he is at 100 percent again, he could have several offers for his services.
