Welcome Back Carter 10/23/13
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - The New England Patriots have re-signed veteran defensive lineman Andre Carter. He played for the team in 2011 and had 10 sacks in a Pro Bowl. He played for the Oakland Raiders in 2012, his 12th NFL season, but has been a free agent since being released Aug. 31.
The Patriots were in the need of a defensive lineman as starting tackles Vince Wilfork and Tommy Kelly are out with injuries. Wilfork is done for the season with a torn right Achilles tendon. Kelly has missed the last two games with a knee injury.
