NFL Free Agency Rumors: Former Redskins DE Andre Carter Signs With Patriots

Former Washington Redskins defensive end Andre Carter will once again have to play with Albert Haynesworth. This time, though, he'll at least do so on a winning team. Carter announced on his Twitter account that he has signed with the New England Patriots, where he will team with Haynesworth to make an impact on passing downs.

I am proud to announce that I will be playing for the New England Patriots for the 2011 season. Thanks you for your prayers and support.less than a minute ago via Echofon Favorite Retweet Reply


The 32-year old Carter had a career year in 2009, but struggled last year to adjust to the Redskins' 3-4 scheme. He lost his starting job and was released prior to the beginning of the NFL lockout.
