Raiders Sign Veteran Defensive Lineman Andre Carter

Oakland Raiders on Wednesday signed veteran free agent defensive lineman Andre Carter. The Raiders also added wide receiver Tori Gurley to the team’s practice squad.



The Oakland Raiders on Wednesday signed veteran free agent defensive lineman Andre Carter. The Raiders also added wide receiver Tori Gurley to the team’s practice squad.

The 6-foot-5, 260-pound Carter is a 12th-year NFL veteran, having played for San Francisco, Washington and New England since entering the league as the 49ers’ first-round selection (seventh overall) in the 2001 NFL Draft, just one pick after the Patriots drafted Carter’s new Raiders teammate Richard Seymour.

Carter has played in 163 career games with 147 starts, totaling 76 sacks, 23 passes defensed, 17 forced fumbles and four fumble recoveries. His 76 career sacks ranks eighth among active NFL players.

The San Jose native earned his first Pro Bowl selection, named a starter, after totaling 10 sacks with the Patriots in 2011. He tied a New England franchise record with four sacks at the New York Jets on Nov. 13, earning AFC Defensive Player of the Week honors, and was credited with 22 quarterback hurries on the season. He played in 110 consecutive games before being placed on injured reserve with a leg injury on Dec. 20, causing him to miss two games and all three of the Patriots’ playoff contests.

Carter has recorded 10 or more sacks in a season four times during his career, including a career-high 12.5 sacks with the 49ers in 2002. He totaled 10.5 sacks in 2007 and 11 in 2009, both with the Redskins.

He finished his collegiate career as California’s all-time leader with 31 sacks, earning unanimous first-team All-America selections from the Associated Press and The Sporting News as a senior. He prepped at Oak Grove High School in San Jose, receiving USA Today All-America honors.

His father, Rubin, played for the Denver Broncos (1975-86) and was an assistant coach for the Redskins from 1999-2000.

Gurley, a 6-foot-4, 215-pound receiver, spent the entire 2011 season on the Packers’ practice squad after signing as a non-drafted free agent out of South Carolina. He was in training camp with Green Bay this season and was released from the Minnesota Vikings’ practice squad on Sept. 18.

To make room on the team’s active roster, the Raiders Wednesday waived offensive lineman Joe Barksdale.
