Andre Carter joins the Patriots

Minnesota Vikings v Washington Redskins Getty Images

Taking a page from their rivals in the AFC East, the New England Patriots have scuttled the whole “build through the draft” mentality that won three Super Bowls in four years, opting instead to round up a bunch of big-name free agents who are much closer to the end of their careers than the beginning.

After adding receiver Chad Ochocincio, defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth, and defensive end Shaun Ellis, the Patriots have agreed to terms with veteran defensive end Andre Carter.

Carter announced the deal on his Twitter page, and Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com confirmed that the message wasn’t the result of an account hacking or a lost phone.

A 10-year veteran, Carter spent his first five seasons with the 49ers, and his next five with the Redskins.  Carter recently worked out with the Giants.

The Redskins cut Carter in March to avoid paying him a $4 million bonus.

    Yet another aging D-Lineman.

    Maybe they can sign Lyle Alzado’s body to a contract, too.

  2. shellstrum says: Aug 7, 2011 10:46 PM

    Patriots just keep getting older
    Think AC still has some quality snaps left for third down pass rushing

  3. pattunya says: Aug 7, 2011 10:47 PM

    …coool , but does he have sexy feet.

  4. mataug says: Aug 7, 2011 10:47 PM

    very effective in 4-3… made useless by the Skins decision to go 3-4

    why they went 3-4 is beyond me… we had very good personnel for 4-3 and in fact it was the offense which was the problem and is still a problem despite the two Shanahan offensive gurus

  5. bittersmuggs says: Aug 7, 2011 10:48 PM

    Further proof that the Pats could be switching to a 4-3? Why else would they waste their time with a guy who’s been a horrible fit in the 3-4 at two previous stops?

  6. iamgoodkid says: Aug 7, 2011 10:48 PM

    wow andre carter to new england thats bogus for NFL teams now they have to block 3 guys on new england wow i dont know if thats going to happen in my mind.

  7. 4evrnyt says: Aug 7, 2011 10:48 PM

    If Andre still has anything left in the tank this is a great move for both sides. Always loved Carter, class act and great football player.

  8. packersareandwillalwaysbebetterthanthebears says: Aug 7, 2011 10:50 PM

    They’re loading up just like they did before 2007, but with older, more washed up players.

  9. kylecleric says: Aug 7, 2011 10:51 PM

    Patriots do this same approach every year. they always grab cheap vets, undrafted free agents, and a large draft class to replenish the team’s talent. what would be unusual is if the Pats went after a big contract free agent in the first week of free agency.

  10. conwayjames says: Aug 7, 2011 10:51 PM

    A. They have like 7 starters in their 2nd year. B. The 3 super bowl tes were built with veteran players. C. To suggest that bb would take a page from that dumbass is laughable.

  11. distressedindc says: Aug 7, 2011 10:52 PM

    great character guy, locker room leader, versatile player….sorry to see him out of DC but he just didn’t fit the 3-4. Looks like the Pats are moving to more of a 4-3 front this year with the Haynesworth and Carter signings

  12. bearsrulepackdrool says: Aug 7, 2011 10:52 PM

    Signed him to make him feel good about himself. He’s not gonna make the team.

  13. bowens3181 says: Aug 7, 2011 10:52 PM

    In all three SB wins the teams were built primarily thru the draft and complemented with key free agent acquisitions like Rodney Harrison or Corey dillon fo example. The patriots are doing the same thing now with a young core of players like McCourty, Chung, Mayo, as well as key veterans like Brady and Wilfork, and belichick is complementing those pieces by adding free agents. They are not abandoning the build thru the draft mentality. It’s simply that they have built thru the draft and now they are simply fine tuning the machine they have built for a Super Bowl run.

  17. bcjim says: Aug 7, 2011 10:55 PM

    Hyw 99 he was called here, lol..actually a good guy and a good rush end.

  18. ceo4eva says: Aug 7, 2011 10:56 PM

    a great guy definately deserves a shot at winning before he retires.

  19. danfitzger says: Aug 7, 2011 10:56 PM

    Very good pass rushing 4-3 DE, he just got stuck twice with a team transitioning to a 3-4. Did his best at attempting to become a OLB, but never really could become successful at it.

  20. CKL says: Aug 7, 2011 10:58 PM

    Wow..a few pats fans were commenting when the ah trade went down that they would rather have had carter. Sweet!

  21. Jay says: Aug 7, 2011 11:00 PM

    who cares…this guy is average at best. He hasn’t done much since his early years with my NINERS.

    i also hear that the patriots are looking at Dashon at safety. Why the patriots are looking at these average, former Niners is beyond me..

    that played and won the title with the Pats

    Rodney Harrison
    Corey Dillon
    Ted Washington

    Roosevelt Colvin

    The Pats have always mixed veteran talent with quality rookies to build championship teams.

    It’s a SIGN PEOPLE. All will be right with the WORLD! 10 years ago was September 11 and it was also THE FIRST of a growing DYNASTY!

    The Pats will be on TOP yet again!!

  23. smellmyface says: Aug 7, 2011 11:03 PM

    All the crap he talked about Haynesworth and he goes to the team that traded for him. Guess he didnt have many offers to ride the bench from other teams.

  24. rexryansdirtysock says: Aug 7, 2011 11:07 PM

    Yeah, the team really abandoned the whole “build through the draft mentality.” I guess the team shouldn’t expect any contributions from Jerod Mayo, Jonathan Wilhite, Patrick Chung, Ron Brace, Darius Butler, Sebastian Vollmer, Brandon Tate, Myron Pryor, Julian Edelman, Devin McCourty, Rob Gronkowski, Brandon Spikes, Jermaine Cunningham, Taylor Price, Aaron Hernandez, Zoltan Mesko, or Brandon Deaderick – players drafted within the past three drafts (excluding 2011, since we don’t know how those players will perform).

    I’d expect better from you Mike. Honestly. Patriots fan or not, you can not possibly argue that the Patriots have given up “building through the draft” when nearly half of the players projected to be on the team’s 53 are from the last two drafts (2009 and 2010) and more than half if you include 2011.

    Andre Carter, Shaun Ellis, and Mark Anderson aren’t expensive buys for the Patriots. All three are low risk, high reward signings. None of the three is guaranteed a roster spot. Ellis will probably land one, but Andre Carter and Mark Anderson will have to compete with the likes of Eric Moore to get one.

  25. weightshakes says: Aug 7, 2011 11:10 PM

    The Pats are clearly gearing up to go 0-1 in the postseason, again.

    @bearsrulepackdrool

    so the anniversary of 9/11 is a sign that all is right in the world?

    thats some kind of logic…

    far as this signing goes, this is what the pats do every year. sign a bunch of vets and hope that a few of them stick. this same process netted us guys like eric moore, brandon mcgowan and danny woodhead in recent years.

    we’ve also stuck out on guys like damione lewis, shawn springs and fernando bryant.

    you never know.

    What a relief they signed Carter. I knew 18 DL in camp wasn’t gonna be enough.

    I guess if you throw enough against the wall they’ll find a few to buy into the system.

  32. suckleague says: Aug 7, 2011 11:19 PM

    Good job saving the 4 mil Washington. But, um, look, with Rex Grossman and John Beck as your QBs, you officially, in every logical sense, without question, in no uncertain terms, without any need for debate, nor the slightest ambiguity, are utterly, and positively, without any question whatsoever, SCREWED. You can cut your entire defense if you want, it won’t matter. 0-16 this way comes.

    Nice picture. Two ex-Redskins – good luck.

  35. andyreidisfat says: Aug 7, 2011 11:35 PM

    I gotta believe the Hoody is going to play more nickle this year, NOT 4-3. a line with Ellis, Fat Al, Wilfork, and Carter on passing downs is a pretty scary line. Carter is and always was a good player. When Washington had those really good defense 4 years ago Carter was one of the better players on the team. He is a really good pass rusher.

    And when he and Fat Al both have big seasons in Ne, it will be just more proof that Shanny is a moron. Imagine a line with Fat al, And anyone in the middle with him and Orakpo and Carter on the outsides. That line would be one of the bests in the NFL. But Shanny knows everything and decided why do that when you can have guys like Orakpo and Carter who are not RUSH linebackers like Clay matthews. I love Orakpo but i watched him trying to get out in coverage against Shady and Avant last year and he looked like Jr. in college. Thats because he should be a D lineman.

    I really feel bad for Redskins fans having to watch the Pats go to the superbowl with players that were on their team playing a big role. To bad for Pats fans they have to lose round 2 in the superbowl to the Eagles =-p

  36. belicheckyoself says: Aug 7, 2011 11:37 PM

    Not enough linebackers in the league…
    Stop the run, force throws…
    Excellent secondary…
    Slants and a Z…
    Shock the world…again.
    Change the game…again.
    Maybe not 2011…but for how many years thereafter?

  37. lostsok says: Aug 7, 2011 11:40 PM

    This sure feels to me like Belicheat is gearing up for one final run. He’s not getting any younger, and without Pioli to rebuild for him…he’s going for old/proven talent instead. There’s no doubt the Pats are better than they were a month ago…but I don’t see them better two years from now…

    Clearly neither does Belicheat.

  38. cokewithrealsugar says: Aug 7, 2011 11:42 PM

    I think moves such as this are done due to a truncated offseason. Relying on seasoned vets to be up to speed on terminology and jargon could help win games initially, but as to how that plays out over the course of the season could negate any early success.

  39. nyjetsman says: Aug 8, 2011 12:02 AM

    This move is lateral if not taking them back a few steps. He isnt anything to be talking about. Just more age to the Patty Cakes. Enjoy your old men Billy the Hood, maybe your magic hoodie and toms hair will win you a superbowl this year. Because your team sure aint.

  40. duncanthecat says: Aug 8, 2011 12:16 AM

    The only problem that the Patriots may find in Carter is that he is a decent man and will not cheat like Billy Boy!

    Shame of the Patriots. If they were in the NCAA they would have had a couple of their cheap championships withdrawn.

  41. all4patriots says: Aug 8, 2011 12:34 AM

    Receiver Chad Ochocincio and defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth

    were NOT free agents

    Rd 1, Pick 17 (17) Solder, Nate OL
    Rd 2, Pick 1 (33) Dowling, Ras-I DB
    Rd 2, Pick 24 (56) Vereen, Shane RB
    Rd 3, Pick 9 (73) Ridley, Stevan RB

    Good point, the Patriots completely side-stepped their usual habit of building through the draft this year…

  43. joyjoy69 says: Aug 8, 2011 12:44 AM

    I also seem to remember a year or so ago when they picked up a few washed up old players – Randy Moss, Wes Welker, Sammy Morris… need I go on. What happened that year?

  44. doworks0n says: Aug 8, 2011 1:51 AM

    doubting what bellichick does or is thinking when it comes to signing players is prolly the dumbest thing u could do..not a pats fan but he still amazes me every year ..the guy is a heck of a football coach and a football mind

  45. pypersrealm says: Aug 8, 2011 2:03 AM

    Strange comment about scuttling the whole “build through the draft” mentality considering that the Patriots annually maneuver the draft to stockpile picks in the first two rounds.

    Also a strange omission to fail to recognize that the Patriots dynasty was built by complementing the draft by signing second tier free agents such as Mike Vrabel, Antowain Smith, Roman Phifer, Ottis Smith, Bryan Cox, Joe Andruzzi….The list goes on and on. And that’s not even counting the “big” name acquisitions they made over the years such as Rosevelt Colvin, Rodney Harrison, Corey Dillon, and Randy Moss.

    It’s got to be sickening for Belichick to read that the approach he’s used successfully for over a decade is somehow now being dismissed as “taking a page from their rivals in the AFC East”.
    Let’s give credit where credit is due. The Patriots didn’t take a page from anyone. They’re the ones who WROTE THE DAMN BOOK!

  46. green41563 says: Aug 8, 2011 3:20 AM

    For all the talk about what a genius Belichick is, the fact remains that he was run out of Cleveland in disgrace and then went 5-11 in his first year in New England before the Patriots hit the biggest draft lottery of all time and found Brady at the back of the sixth round.

    If the Patriots didn’t luck out of their minds by finding a top-5 all-time QB a the back of the sixth round, how many rings does Belichick have?

  47. depotnator says: Aug 8, 2011 3:46 AM

    Ha ha…gotta love it when MF tweaks his PFT Nation’s Pats fan base by suggesting BB is trying to copy SexyRexy’s moves to bring in a bunch of aging vets to guide his kids beyond one-and-done in the playoffs.

  48. bobhk says: Aug 8, 2011 4:16 AM

    Belichick is getting deperate. It’s been 6 years since he won the superbowl and the main guy (Brady) is getting older. I see Belichick thinking that the window of opportunity is closing fast.

    Agreed…in fantasy league. Rarely do teams loading up in FA make it to superbowl.

  50. descendency says: Aug 8, 2011 5:34 AM

    This is just another attempt to find someone to bolster their league worst 3rd down defense. It has zero to do with their base D.

    Andre Carter will be brought in on rush downs and will likely be relatively effective at it.

    And I kind of agree with the notion that the Patriots have given up on building through the draft. They simply aren’t investing high picks into OLB/DE and DE/DT types. They desperately need a young Ty Warren and they simply don’t have him.

  51. hscorpio says: Aug 8, 2011 6:07 AM

    Does Belichek’s career path remind anyone else of his mentor Parcells? Some early SB wins followed by a long, but ultimately futile, chase for more?

  52. tellemallrex says: Aug 8, 2011 6:29 AM

    Jets Patriots games this year are setting up to be very low scoring games, seems like the Pats are going to force Sanchez to have great games against them for the Jets to have a chance. Will be interesting.

  53. cylondetector says: Aug 8, 2011 7:54 AM

    Parcells jumped from team to team. He couldn’t stay anywhere long enough to finish the job. Belichick has been with the Patriots for the long haul.

    Belichick also had a bad situation in Cleveland. Modell was moving the team…everyone knew it. No team has success when the Orginazation is unstable.

  56. hoier says: Aug 8, 2011 8:12 AM

    When was the las time Philly, Jets, Washington were in the Seper Bowl, much less win it?

    The points about the Patiots mixing it up with draft picks (lots of them) and second tier free agents is true.

    Belechick typcically does not put up with slackers. I wonder if this current move has anything to do with Fat Albert H. being out for two consecutive practices, and out for more practices than he has attended.

    Time to get over the “cheating” folks. Every team does it. If you don’t think so stick to fantasy football.

  57. jim12385 says: Aug 8, 2011 8:16 AM

    2001 team was built upon the backs of close to retirement free agents at discount prices. BB had only been coach for a couple of years, so he was working with Pete Carrol’s left overs in many areas.

    2003 still had many older FAs including those from 2001 in addition to the recent draft picks of BB.

    2004 was more of a team built through the draft.

    I see what the Patriots doing this year as very similar to 2001, not 2007.

    I would rather see this route than signing big name, high priced FAs. That has never worked for them in the past when it comes to defense…see Adalius Thomas and Rosie Colvin (though in fairness Colvin was limited due to the major injury he suffered).

  58. mayfieldroadboy says: Aug 8, 2011 8:21 AM

    @hscorpio
    every coach ever winning a SB is always in the hunt for the next one; as is every coach not winning a SB. Futile or not, that’s why the games are played. And that’s why Belichick is rounding out a team with all these FAs, to complement the 60% young draftees on his team. Most of these FAs now in Pat-land will not be there at the beginning of the season. I look for that D-line and secondary to be scarey and negate the fact he doesn’t have the right caliber of LBs.

  59. Patskrieg dot com says: Aug 8, 2011 8:37 AM

    Guys, really. The Pats do this every year. You’ve got 90 spots now to fill a camp roster with. They bring in veterans to see what they have left in the tank, and see what they can offer to an otherwise young roster.

    Tory Holt? John Lynch? Joey Galloway?

    With the exception of stone hands Galloway none of those guys hurt the team by working out with the Pats.

  60. Robert Chandler says: Aug 8, 2011 9:26 AM

    It’s clear what Belichick has on his mind. He is Hell-bent on beefing up that pass rush, one of the key elements in stalling their playoff drives the past few seasons. By carefully adding some key role players, I think they’ll see results in that area. If the offense continues to click and score in the Red Zone at a high rate, the team will be right there at season’s end. Of course, injuries are the great equalizer and I think the Pats are just as vulnerable as most teams. But I see what the HC and GM are doing and think it’s the right way to go. If the Pats’ pass rush suddenly comes alive, they will be much tougher to beat.

    I see the AFC coming down to the Patriots, Steelers, Ravens and Jets. As usual, the team peaking at the end of the year will be tough to beat.

  63. j0esixpack says: Aug 8, 2011 9:49 AM

    Belichick’s approach to build through the draft hasn’t changed

    What’s changed is a dramatically shortened offseason where inexperienced rookies haven’t had the benefit of OTAs, training camp or pre-season games to top it off

    In short, any team depending on rookies to start is at a major disadvantage.

    Solution? Hire cheap, short-timer veterans to provide quality depth at affordable prices.

    In the Patriots case they’re already a young defense, having gone 14-2 in a rebuilding year last year, so the older vets are an asset and all are low risk high reward players.

  64. holdthemayo123 says: Aug 8, 2011 10:00 AM

    Weren’t they one of the youngest D’s in football last year? I would think their heavy reliance on the draft is what is leading to adding some more vets.

  65. boyshole25 says: Aug 8, 2011 10:02 AM

    andre carter is solid player and a class act. that said i doubt he makes the team, but makes for a great situational pass rushing end. we in washington wish him the best, maybe now he will get a chance at a ring because he is the caliber guy that deserves it

  66. clinttaurus says: Aug 8, 2011 10:25 AM

    terrible analysis by the author of the post to NOT realize that the SB-winning Pats teams from 2001 on were built with a number of inexpensive vet FAs (all “much closer to the end of their careers than the beginning”) to compliment their drafted players…

    this has always been BB’s MO, not something taken from the page of his AFC East rivals…

    Bill Parcells, two different QBs in two different Super Bowl wins. He also got to the Super Bowl with Drew Bledsoe.

    Dick Vermeil won a Super Bowl with Kurt Warner and got to a second one with Ron Jaworski.

    Bud Grant also made it to a Super Bowl with Joe Kapp and three others with Fran Tarkenton.

    BTW, Tom Landry only won a title with Staubach.

    And it’s Joe Montana and Chuck Noll, richmoron. Go back and get your GED.

    Don’t forget Weeb Ewbank! (Don’t worry, everyone does.)

    He won the 1958 NFL Championship over the Giants with Johnny Unitas and the Baltimore Colts (i.e. The Greatest Game Ever Played), as well as the 1959 Championship.

    He then went on to win Super Bowl III with Joe Namath and the Jets, over the Baltimore Colts, his former team, coached by his successor, Don Shula.
