    He's a 4-3 DE and a 3-4 OLB. He can do both from what I understand...

          andre is pretty damn good. he played in SF so you didnt get to see them on tv and this year was the year they switch to the 3-4. he is better as an edge rusher in the 4-3 which is what he would do here in denver. he tried to add on some wieght but is better when he is around 255. he reminds me alot of simon fletcher who was in the same position as a 3-4 olb in denvers old system.

          hope that helps

            Hes basicly a fast edge rusher. With "Big Money" clogging the middle and Brown on the other side we could actually have a pretty good defensive line.All we would need next would be another DT, which we will probably pick up in the draft.

                Key point. I would love to see the Broncos add Lewis and Carter. Save some money against the cap. Keep both picks and add Mathias Kiwaunuka and Claude Wrotten with 22 and 29. The defensive line would be shored up. and we can go WR, S, CB and Oline in the draft. Im also hoping we can add Devin Hester even with the 2nd Rd pick. We need a kick and punt returner in the worst way.

                  I am almost positive that when Andre Carter was drafted by the 49ers the Broncos were interested in him them. In fact I believe that after the draft their was a rumor that Denver had tried to trade up to take him but the trade talks feel through. I have no proof of this just my memory going back to when he was drafted. I just rember for some reason I took an interest in him because I heard the broncos wanted him. I think he would be a good pick up and we still would have two first round picks.

                    I don't really see that much downside to Carter over Abraham. One of my February issues of The Sporting News had Carter as one of the best defensive free agents available this year. Size and age - wise, there isn't that much difference, but the advantage would have to go to Carter in my book. A guy that has his kind of size, the ability to play DE, as well as the ability and experience to drop into coverage is huge. Maybe Engelberger had some inside info on this guy for the coaches?

                    Carter also had a 12.5 sack year in '02, the last year in which he started all 16 games. That was also the last year Steve Mariucci was head coach. From then on, there hasn't been a good coach in place. I just think there might be a huge upside to this guy, and that we could get him for a lot less than Abraham.

                    *NOTE* I am not at all opposed to getting Abraham.

                      I honestly don't know anything about him. But if he is anything like his dad, then i say go for it.

                        I'd rather bring in Abraham at the De position, but if we cannot come to agrrement with a sign and trade with the Jets. Then I guess bringing in Carter as the pass rushing specialist isn't a bad idea. Then we can find somebody to compliment Warren with our 1st pick in the draft and draft an O-linemen or TE with our 2nd 1st rounder.

                          This site lists him at 265.
                          http://www.nfl.com/players/playerpage/235200

                          Height: 6-4
                          Weight: 265
                          Born: 05/12/1979
                          College: California
                          NFL Experience: 5

                          32 sacks in 5 seasons.

                          2001: 39 solo 6.5 sacks
                          2002: 45 solo 12.5 sacks
                          2003: 27 solo 6.5 sacks
                          2004: 8 solo 2 sacks (7 games)
                          2005: 35 solo 4.5 sacks

                          If we sign him we could probably expect around 5 sacks from him. He obviously hasn't produced in the same way as Abraham but he would come cheaper and wouldnt cost us a first rounder.

                            Carter not bad. Good speed and can drop into Cover..With Warren demending a double team, either Carter or BRown will be 1on1.. and i think they both can make a move. He is cheaper keeps both are 1st round picks, and maybe gives us more money to go After a guy Like T.O... I still think adding a guy like Carter to are D-Line is an improvment...Yes i do belive Aberham would be a bigger improvment because he nees a double team to!!! but if you can improve are D-line with Carter and with a draft pick and be able to Sign T.O... I dont see anything wrong with that, that way you Improve both Off and Def.. I think its a great move when u like at the Hole picture!!!

                              Andre Carter
                              Position: OLB
                              Height: 6-4

                              Abraham has 53.5 career sacks compared to Carters 32. Carter is obviously worth looking at because he wont cost us a first rounder. If we get him cheap and he comes in and gets us 7 sacks, thats a much better move than using a first rounder for Abraham.
