Earlier today, Alex Marvez of Foxsports.com reported that the Patriots are interested in free-agent defensive end Kevin Carter.

The Boston Globe has confirmed that interest, and has learned that Carter is scheduled to visit with the club on Tuesday.
Carter has one of the more remarkable statistics for a defensive lineman -- he has never missed a game over his 14-year career.
Carter's scheduled visit does not mean that a contract is imminent, but it is a sign that both sides have enough interest to explore the possibility.
