Redskins release Andre Carter

Interesting name there. The Redskins had a really good defense in 2009, with a roster full of players made for the 4-3 (see Albert Haynesworth, London Fletcher, Andre Carter, etc). Carter was a really good pass rusher at LDE that year, as he picked up 11 sacks and 3 forced fumbles. Then the Redskins changed over their coaching staff, which proceeded to have their players fit a scheme they wanted to run instead of putting their players in the best position to succeed, and we all saw how that turned out. Carter, for example, became an out-of-position 3-4 OLB, and did so without complaining. He's still a good player, and to compare him to a current Eagle, is actually a year younger than Juqua Parker, who is on the hook for $3.5 million in 2011. Don't be shocked if you hear Parker's name on the chopping block this week, by the way. I like Parker, but I'm not sure the Eagles will want to allocate $3.5 million of the salary cap to him. Derrick Dockery was also released by the Redskins, and Ma'ake Kemoeatu is expected to be released soon as well.
