Just want to give Andre Carter props

He is a class individual and it is a shame it couldn't work out here. Here is a good article from the Boston area if you want to read it:

Andre Carter finds what he wanted with Pats - BostonHerald.com

Quote:
“There were just times I felt uncomfortable (as a linebacker),” said Carter, whose team went from a 4-3 scheme to a 3-4.

Carter was due a $4.1 million option bonus last offseason, which he figured was unlikely to be paid. The sides could have hammered out a new deal. Instead, Poston met with Redskins general manager Bruce Allen to set him free.

“The first thing I asked (Allen) was, ‘What were your future plans. We would really like to ask for a release,’ ” said Poston. “Sometimes, if the player indicates that he wants to go in a different direction, the team might allow him to do that. Bruce Allen said, ‘If (Carter) feels like that’s what he wants to do, we’ll go ahead and release him.’ ”

Carter’s release happened on March 1.

Through a Redskins spokesman, Allen said recollections from the Carter camp are “true.” He also described the parting as “mutual.” The respect from both sides was clear.
Nice to see our organization is treating the good guys with respect, even if they don't fit here any more.

Good luck AC

Re: Just want to give Andre Carter props

HATED to see AC go....but it was clear the 3-4 was not working out for him. I to am very glad the organization treated him with respect that he deserved and willing to honor his release.

What do you expect? He went to Cal just like Lorenzo Alexander, Nhamdi Asomugha, Aaron Rogers, Alex Mack, Tony Gonzales, all of them class acts. The only punk out of Cal is Desean Jackson.

Re: Just want to give Andre Carter props

Even though Carter was never meant to be in a 3-4, he gave it his all while he was here and we all know that's not something to be taken for granted around these parts. He was a fine player in his own right as a 4-3 DE and I wish him future success, because he was one of those guys we never had a problem with the entire time he was here.

Re: Just want to give Andre Carter props

Always liked AC & thought he grew as a run-stopper here, always was a good pass rusher. Too bad he & Jarmon couldn't make the transition. I wish rosters were bigger & guys like AC could stay in a backup role. He can't play OLB but he could be a situational DE in nickel.

LOL, don't ask Haynesworth about his respectful treatment, or Rogers for that matter.

in terms of Haynesworth, respect is a 2 way streak. None given none deserved.

I am not sure about Rogers, I think that he was given every opportunity, but he saw his worth as far more than the Redskins did. Remember that we are not discussing VC's/DS treatment of players, but BA and MS. Was he bad mouthed, or held hostage here by them?

Re: Just want to give Andre Carter props

it's hard not to give respect to a player when it's blatantly obvious they give it they're all whether they fit in a system or not. On the other hand it's very hard to give respect to a player that tiptoes around work because "he doesn't wanna play that way."

May our future be filled with many Andre Carters and far fewer Albert Haynesworths.

Rogers was ready to go before Shanahan even got here and once he realized that he wasn't thought of as highly by ShanAllen as he thought he should of been, he felt disrespected.
