Kevin Carter Visiting Lions

Veteran unrestricted free agent defensive end Kevin Carter visited the Detroit Lions on Tuesday, according to Nate Caminata of Scout.com.
In 14 NFL seasons, Carter has recorded 364 tackles and 104 1/2 sacks.
Last season, he registered 49 tackles and four sacks while starting every game for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Carter, who has prior stints with the Miami Dolphins, Tennessee Titans and the St. Louis Rams, played for new Lions coach Jim Schwartz in Tennessee when he was running the Titans’ defense as their defensive coordinator.

    No wonder the Lions defense sucked. It is tough running it from Tennessee. I can see where one might get distracted.

    “played for new Lions coach Jim Schwartz in Tennessee when he was running the Lions’ defense.”

    He still has some in the tank and the Lions should take whatever they can get.

    14 years? gotta love this “build through the draft” BS the Lions front office has been feeding us since The Schwartz was hired. next year we better draft defense FFS.

    I don’t remember Schwartz ever being a defensive coordinator for the Lions. It must of been when he was ten and I wasn’t born yet.

    God the Lions are stupid.
    I didn’t even realize they let a coach with another franchise run their defense. That is just poor decision making.

    Jim Schwartz ran the Lions defense from Tennessee? No wonder it was so bad, there was no hands on…

  15. BronzeHammer says: Apr 28, 2009 8:57 PM

    Titans defense*.

  16. rdeal317 says: Apr 28, 2009 10:27 PM

    Just before the visit concluded he pulled himself out for a play.

  17. BuckFutter says: Apr 28, 2009 10:47 PM

    Hahaha.
    Ocho-cinco means eight five!

    Wow, 104 sacks? That’s an impressive number, I had no idea he had that many. I always considered 100 HOF level..

    I believe that Schwartz coached the Rams defense when he was in Detroit, and the Titans D when involved with the west coast scheme on the east coast. Hopefully, this clears everything up. About Carter though, I enjoyed his time in St. Louis, first rate guy on and off the field (insofar as there were no DUIs or inadvertent killings), who put up numbers that, at the end of his career, MIGHT add up to mild Hall of Fame consideration. He’s been a quiet guy, though, and that doesn’t usually get you in. Good luck to him now that he’ll be away from Schwartz out in Winnipeg.
