It has been less than a week since Andre Carter rejoined the New England Patriots. While it may be due to circumstance rather than desire from perhaps both parties his presence is already being felt by his teammates. In particular the teams best pass rusher, Chandler Jones, has already started to soak in as much as possible from the veteran defensive lineman, who held that title prior to Chandler.
"Andre's a very, very smart player. He's a big help," Jones said. "I've learned so much for him just in a few days. He's a guy that's been in the system before so he's pretty familiar with what's going on. And, like I say, he's a vet and I've learned a lot from him."
In 7 games so far this season Chandler Jones has 6.5 and triple that in QB hits. A game plan nightmare for opposing offensives the wisdom and guidance that Andre Carter could provide to Chandler will probably outweigh his impact on the field. As Carter put it, Patriots or retirement but as Chandler put it "The guy's been in the league for such a long time, it's an advantage."
