    Moore, Cunningham and Anderson are not guys I would throw out on end and say... Bring it on! Good signing as a 43 pass rushing defensive end with experience - just wish he, along with everyone we've been signing lately - were younger.

    Got to think with the guys we've added: Haynesworth, Carter, Ellis...will bring experience and some rush ability.

    This is a quality signing as were the Ellis and Anderson signings it looks like the Patriots are trying too build a solid front 7 all three of these guys have had good years during their careers.

    He was a rookie making a position switch to OLB. I'd give Cunningham more time. I'd be more worried about Eric Moore.

    Cunningham is a decent player....but can anyone really say that he has shown any flashes of brilliance?

    I agree mthurl but I guess youth only cares about $ while veterans care about Championships.  At this point seems all the vets want to come to New England.

    Good move.  Quality depth and versatility on the D line is a great thing.  The Pats have added some nice pieces to a defense that was going to be better since the young guys are likely to be a bit better this year.

    Re: Andre Carter is a patriot!!!!!!!

    could be because dane fletcher is average in both the run and pass. bel was saying the other day its sometimes best to get a guy who's great at just one thing rather than just a low ceiling average guy in multiple positions. pats ' line backers beyond mayo-guyton and spikes are failrly average at everything. y not try to strike lightening in the bottle. moore has outplayed cunnuingham. if he shows nothing he has to go. its all about competition. like the nba u need vets to win. youngies must show u something instantly or they have to drop in depth or get cut. as it looks, all the top guys on the d-line will be 28-33. not bad.cunningham right now is playing himself into willhite, butler or the midget or wheatley from last year status..

    Re: Andre Carter is a patriot!!!!!!!

    Looking at Carter's career...where he was drafted, who played around him, his production, skills, etc....I wonder what this guy could of been and what he my enjoy (for success) here. He's played on some very bad teams, you put him here and who knows. He just turned 32, so although not young, he's not exactly over the hill either. One thing for sure is that the guy has a freakish build ala Jevon Kearse/Willie McGinnest type. His arms and wing span are outrageous, he's got the height and athleticism and I like his pretty consistent production as far as sacks go throughout his career. I don't think he's had any major injuries and he keeps himself in crazy shape. I like this move a lot.

    They are bringing in a ton of pass rush specialists that they are just going to keep rotating. This guy was horrific in 3-4 so he's definitely just going to pretty much pass rush.

    It's another nice pickup....they won't have to blitz too much...and have some good four man fronts....Carter is a good player who can get after it...also played in a 3-4 which is a big factor

    I read he did not want to play as a LB... he wants to play DL. so is the 4-3 a sure thing now ?

    Re: Andre Carter is a patriot!!!!!!!

    I haven't been this excited about a team since we were going into 2007. While he is not exactly young, keep in mind that we already have a lot of young guys and they need some veterans to complement them. Youth is good but experience is also essential.

    A lot of players that could make a big difference to the defence: Ellis, Carter, Haynseworth, Bodden.

    Plus the offense should be better as well with the new RBs, Gronk reportedely beasting it up in camp, and Taylor Price looking like he could emerge as a quality WR. Plus the addition of Ocho and Welker being another year removed from knee surgery.

    I think this is the year of the 4th Lombardi.

         I don't think Haynesworth "put in a good word for him". Carter was one of the 'Skins who called Big Al out for dogging it in DC:

    Don't give up on Cunningham yet.

    Remember that he missed all of training camp last summer with an injury, which is never good if you're a rookie.

    Still, by November he was beginning to show signs of coming on, and then he got hurt against the Bears and basically played at half-speed through the rest of the season.

    Kid's got a lot of potential, but obviously BB felt he needed more experience up front given that everyone except Wilfork and Wright, prior to the flurry of acquisitions over the last two weekends, is entering either his second or third year in the NFL.

    Re: Andre Carter is a patriot!!!!!!!

    I really like this signing, the pats have brought in some guys that have a history in being able to rush the passer, also it provides veteran leadership for the younger guys. On PFT were i learned of this signing i was reading the comment and one comment read " the patriots defense keeps getting older " which for sure isnt true at all i think with this signing we have all of 3-4 guys on our D that are over thirty, but like i said adding some older guys ads alot of leadership and direction for this overall young defense to follow.

    yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa anyone who made a negative Cunnigham comment is crazy... he started as a rookie at OLB and played DE in College.  Let's give the guy one more years before we judge what he'll bring.

    I don't know. Pass rushing ability usually jumps out early. I was hoping he would be great in camp, and show some development, but every report I have read shows that he looks the worst among the pass rushers out there, especially in one-on-ones, where he hasn't been winning any matchups.

    IT is early in his career, but what I've seen so far doesn't inspire tons of confidence. Let's hope he can take a leap forward this summer.

    on cunningham, looks like so-so. i dotn knwo what it  will take for him to show that he could be something. he's got a year to show it. urban meyer may have liked cunningham better than dunlap, but he hasnt showed us too much yet.

    any of you guys agree with the saints fans that our interest in roth is done, or is it maybe come back if you dont get the kind of money you're lookin for?

    Re: Andre Carter is a patriot!!!!!!!

    carter is a gamer! great pickup! he always plays well on winning teams, and his worst seasons have been on bad teams during coaching and scheme changes. 6.5 sacks under mariuchi as a rookie, 12.5 his second season of a team with a winning record, then coaching change, team does bad, carters production drops... eventually moves on to washington after 3 average seasons on a below average team. 6 sacks in his first year with the skins, 10.5 the next for a winning team.. then a coaching change... only 4 sacks under new regime. 11 sacks the next season for a 4-12 team and finally he ended with last season with only 2.5 sacks as a member of the sorry skins.

    i'm expecting 2-3 solid seasons from carter and 7-12 sacks next to hayneworth, wilfork, ellis...etc.

    Gotta love this part TP:

    Carter is a tall, lean player with excellent athleticism and deceptive strength for the position. He has lost a step over the past two seasons but still has great initial quickness coming off the edge. He is a crafty veteran who utilizes active hands and a variety of counter moves to pressure the quarterback. He leverages larger blockers well to set the edge but isn't a physical run defender. He is a solid reactor to both the run and pass and has been versatile enough to fit in a 3-4 and 4-3 front during his long NFL career.
