  Patriots | Andre Carter might return    Sat Jun 23, 08:25 PM

The New England Patriots might have an interest in bringing back free-agent DL Andre Carter (Patriots) (quadriceps) as he continues to progress in his rehab. The club has not given out his No. 93 jersey as of yet. Carter would bring a strong balance of veteran leadership and production to the locker room if he returns.

Footballguys view: Carter had double-digit sacks last year (10) before going down with a quadriceps injury. He's not received a lot of free agent interest as he continues to rehab. Re-joining the Patriots just makes too much sense.

  Ravens | Is Andre Carter a possibility?     Mon May 7, 09:24 AM
