It took Andre Carter some time to end up with the Raiders last year, and now he’s staying.

According to Josina Anderson of ESPN, Carter is staying with the Silver and Black on a one-year contract.

Carter signed with the Raiders a month into last season after multiple visits. A torn quad muscle from 2011 kept him from capitalizing on his 10-sack season with the Patriots. He had 2.5 sacks in 12 games with Oakland last year.

Carter’s been a productive player when well, with 78.5 sacks in 12 years, with four double-digit sack seasons. For a team trying to scrape through this year while working out from under a mountain of dead money, they could do a lot worse.
