He's 13 years in the league. he's been a consistent 5-6 sack per year guy over the last 4. We don't have any DL depth right now. He might be as good as it gets but he's obviously not the future and he certainly doesn't change anything about draft priority anymore than Garcia does.

I'm sort of with Boid to the extent that we are once again rolling the old and busted crowd into town and I can't help but get Deese-ian shudders up and down my spine.

All posts are opinions in case you are too stupid to figure that out on your own without me saying it over and over.

Rice may not even be on the opening day roster for the 2007 season.
A year or two ago that seemed like it would be the case but the team has the money and as of right now only two NFL DE's on the roster. Even if Gaines Adams comes off at the #4 pick and Kevin Carter comes in, Rice is still worth keeping.

FRG is the most logical poster on this board.  You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.

Carter the Next Target

Free agent defensive end Kevin Carter, released by the Dolphins on Friday, will visit the Bucs Monday as Tampa Bay attempts to beef up a lackluster pass rush.

Carter's agent, Harold Lewis, said Tampa will be the former Pro Bowler's first, and hopefully last, visit.

"If the coaching (staff) and management like what they see and we can get a deal done, then I see no reason for him to take any other visits," Lewis said.

"They're one of the teams he's fascinated by the chance to play for."

One factor working in the Bucs' favor is that Carter, a former UF standout and native Floridian, would like to remain in the state. Other interested teams include the Denver Broncos and Tennessee Titans, though no other visits have been scheduled.

Lewis portrayed Carter as a player who would be an asset on and off the field.

"On the field, he's what they're looking for, but off the field, he'd be a great addition for them," Lewis said. "He's a great guy to have in the locker room, a guy who can mentor young players."

Carter's also a pretty formidable player. The two-time Pro Bowl selection has 97.5 career sacks and started 16 games for Miami in 2006 with 5.5 sacks. And he is renowned for his durability, having never missed a game in his 12 NFL seasons.

In 1999, as a member of the Rams, Carter posted a league-high 17 sacks -- the most by a Rams player since Jack Youngblood's 18 in 1979. If the Bucs reach a deal with Carter, it is unclear what that might mean for right defensive end Greg Spires. Carter also played RDE for Miami, plus Spires has a base salary of $4.5-million for 2007.

Depending on the the deal I wouldn't mind Carter at all.  I'm sure that's not the only way we're trying to fix the pass rush.  He's definately worth a look.

I like him for the simple fact we are trying to get bigger but not lose a step which he defanitely accomplishes, he could easily be interchanged between UT and DE, and possibly NT in PR situations.

He's had 4 year with 10 plus sacks, he's old but durable. This could be a very nice signing.

He hasn't a 10 sack season in 5 years.
