Raiders sign veteran DE

The Raiders signed veteran defensive end Andre Carter on Wednesday in a move designed to generate more pressure on the quarterback.
Carter last played in 2011 for the New England Patriots, when he notched 10 sacks. The Raiders worked out Carter once in training camp and early this season.
The Raiders recorded only three sacks their first three games. Defensive end Desmond Bryant said the addition of a proven pass-rusher such as Carter will make everyone around him better.
Carter entered the NFL as a first-round draft pick of the 49ers in 2001. He played for the 49ers for five seasons before signing with the Washington Redskins in 2006 and spending five seasons there.
Overall, Carter has 76 sacks in 163 regular-season games. Four times he has posted at least 10 sacks in a season, including a career-best 12 ½ for the 49ers in 2002.
The Raiders cut second-year offensive tackle Joseph Barksdale to make room for Carter on the 53-man roster.

    Belicheat fined 50k for a little pull on the official’s shirt, Mundy fined 21k for sending DHB into next week…took half an hour to cart him off…and not getting flagged for it? something seems off

  • dr_robert

    What a list.

  • bank-bank

    Are you kidding me.The other day Mike Francesa from WFAN IN New York was angry because Our Raiders only had 2 penalties.I mean he had a nasty SCOWL on his face just because Our RAIDERS had just 2 penalties.My jaw hit the ground in disbelief.He hates the Raiders as well as the Regular Refs.

  • ray_d

    Another injured vet sigh….. How is bartel and Spencer worked out so far.

  • Marks hair

    If the mob refs come back we’re getting 10+ flags tossed at us. And we’ll really feel it vs atl.

    Beachy Dawg,

    My duece log was so large it popped up and made an appearance in my next door neighbors bowl. My neighbor wants to charge me rent if I do it again. Please let me know what the PMPP would do. I’ve seen this blog everyday and see that you are well versed in dueceology. Please professor help me.
    I was thinking, maybe can your boat come and pick it up and tow it out to sea?

    —————

    PC, while I can appreciate your predicament, we – the members of the PMPP – cannot offer to an invitation yet to apply for membership

    You must first establish a solid rep on the blog, which can only be accomplished by:

    1) partying serious
    2) bagging on my minions (Nob Peemore Bust is always an easy target to warm up on)
    3) getting straight up fizzle with a sweet margarita

    We’re keeping an eye on you, brah. It’s now up to you to rise to the challenge or fade into blog oblivion.

    HOLLA

    My prediction for next Al Davis Draft pick cut…… Taiwan Jones…

    Not surprising though.

    Good signing. I like this signing because our pressure on each QB this season has been nearly non-existent. I’m hoping Carter puts mega pressure on bobble head Sunday because we know…Manning can perform some amazing stuff if there is little to no pressure upon him.

    Beeech, I think you may have lost a couple of members. You may have to start doing some recruiting.

  • bank-bank

    Marks Hair,you already ready know what time it is when those regular refs return.We will get at least 12 or more penalties.They are going to make up for lost time against Our Raiders.Watch and see.

    BOLD, being that Reggie has brought in 0-ZERO RB’s to work out for team, even in pre-season.

    Taiwan safe for this season, not a great need at all.

  • mcfadden20.

    even if regular refs come back and throw 2 or 3 extra flags a game , we’re still not going to hurt our chances with Offsides and false starts… what was it 1 false start and 0 offsides? nice.. last year it seemed like half of the penalties were from false starts or offsides

  • mcfadden20.

    false starts and/or offsides**^^

  • beechams gay lover

    how’s about this: beechy dawg takes me in his mouth

    I can’t think of a next line

  • http://InsidetheOaklandRaiders Goldie7

    Thanks for being with the Raiders Barksdale. I was hoping you would become a starter and Mr. Allen Davis had high hopes for you. Good Luck because a really good team will sign you to their roster soon. Take care.

  • mcfadden20.

    Hope So’oto and Carter can provide some nice pass rush this week

  • mcfadden20.

    I wonder who Carter grew up rooting for ? The Raiders or the Whiners? I love players on this team , who also grew up rooting for us … I hate A Rodgers.. just because he grew up rooting for the Niners and he wasn’t even mad when his team was losing to them .. wtf

  • bank-bank

    Mcfadden20 come on man are you kidding me.Ive seen all kinds of penalties against us that was unbelievable.Other teams just don’t get em like we do.

    Albert Klas, you and your mother both know that the PMPP has never – nor will ever – recruit members

    I am thinking maybe Andre Carter might be a stop gap player until So’oto’s ankle heals. Carter might be good for a game or two but hard to believe he has a ton left in the tank.

    I guess Reggie’s Gut told him to take a chance on Carter.

    I know but what I’m saying is , we have really stopped committing pre-snap penalties… last year was a different story .. we were always going offside , and so many false starts… I know those flags are going to come when they are playing but just hope we don’t hurt our chances with Pre-Snap , Penalties

    He’s not going to play every down , he will only come in on passing situations …

    I don’t think they are getting rid of Jones. But when you have a bad game or don’t practice you are going to sit. That’s the accountability we all wanted to see from Al.

  • pcraider

    PMPP, just took a dump that was as mean as John (Hardbowels)Harbaugh. After the battle was over, I refused to shake it’s hand too.
    Wonder if that will be on ESPN’s first take.

    Yeah but Rothleisberger heaved it what, 50 times? Imagine what Manning is gunning for. He is going to have to play a bunch of snaps.

    Taiwan is prob the most talented 3rd string RB in the league. For that reason alone you give him special teams action and let him continue to grow.
    1st game he blew that reverse with Reece, but that play was installed for him and only him, thats saying something, Goodson came with experience and a handful of starts so Taiwan will get some plays again when the time is right.

    a new 3rd string RB is not a need, so not a clue why you think they would be cutting him? at this point use his speed and put him at CB lol

    The next problem is the refs, just like the players take a few weeks to get in “game shape”. That can’t be good.

    The mob refs will wear giant yellow dildos for our game.. trust me they love the extra attention of a raider game.. they even give our opponents a few extra flags..

    Based on what?The hope you have for him.He hasn’t played enough to make any real evaluations,wouldn’t you say?

  • pcraider

    “Yellow” flag football has returned…

  • RaiderRetribution

    fastest 3rd string rb, most definitely;

    he needs to get those butterflies from playing Div 1-A college football out of his mind or tummy;

    realise he can play in the NFL and play his game

    run, be free Taiwan,

    Independence for Taiwan!

    Look at every 3rd string RB in the league ….
    none is faster, or as explosie, if you think he isn;t either of those? he cant pass protect but he was behind McFadden & Bush and now Mcfadden & Goodson. he will become a solid player like a dexter mccluster.

  • lefty12

    We all know the mob officials (I like that description) will screw the Raiders whenever they get the chance.But teams like the Stealers who were pushing the envelope might also have some problems trying to re-adjust.

  • http://raiders.com Seymour Bush

    The Squeelers didn’t even really try to run it. Dungver has not been overly successful trying to run it. I am thinking we are going to see a repeat of last week where Manning heaves it 8 times for each time they run. Having Carter and others out there may spell the Dlinemen a bit.
