    This is a solid addition. Carter struggled as an OLB last year, but he had 11 sacks in 2009 as a DE.

    He may beat out Anderson for a roster spot.

    One hour after this tweet from Mike Reiss:

    "@39Sakuraba Haven't heard anything along the lines of Andre Carter."

    Sounds like that Sakuraba has some good sources...

    So we have a handful of youngsters who need to show significant improvement from last year, with little camp to do so; and, a handful of vets who are one or two years off of very good seasons.

    I like it. Completely unpredictable outcome. BB sees the opportunity this unusual league situation has created and is manufacturing a response.

    He's another player that was messed up by Rat Face. BB is gonna find a 4-3 pass rusher yet.

    Yep, 90 players is a big playground, and the micro-FA period is bound to make players panicky that camps are in full swing without them. Kick every tire, Bill!

    I guess this is a sign to every single DLman on the team: work your butts off, because only half of you are sticking around.

    It makes me wonder if there's a trade in the works; one or two of the young DL plus Merriweather and/or Tate. I just don't know what he'd be after, though. The elite "edge" pass rushers are either too specialized or too expensive or both. A RB doesn't make sense because we've got so much potential there. Another WR? Why? But I'm suspicious....

    If anything, it merely reminds Haynesworth that he won't be handed a roster spot.

    Absolutely. Or, not. It could mean that he doesn't like the lack of progress of some of the youngsters. Or not. It could mean that he's trading Wilfork, for all we know.

    Looks like BB is compensating for the decimation of the D-Line last season.

    Carter is an end, not a tackle so I'm not sure that is the case. Looks more like BB wants depth on the line. With many of these guys over the age of 30, you are going to have to limit snaps to see them make it through the season.

    I like the signing. What I don't like is that this is probably a sign BB doesn't think Cunningham is ready for prime time yet as 4-3 DE.

    Could be, but I don't think so. BB signed Haynesworth to play on the inside with Vince. He's loading up on DE's to find the best outside guys. Don't look now, but I think this does not bode well for Cunningham. He's not having a good camp and I wouldn't be shocked to see him gunned.

    I'm reminded of the 2001 team. A lot of recycled vets gave it a real go. :D
