Should Andre Carter be Traded or Released?


The Redskins have 6 OLB's listed on their roster.  Brian Orakpo, Chris Wilson, Lorenzo Alexander, Rob Jackson, Jeremy Jarmon and Andre Carter are the guys the coaches will have to choose from this season.  With only a 53 man roster to work with, and special teams also being an area of concern, who will emmerge from this group to be a starte next to Rak, and who will be the two back-ups?

 

I imagine that we can only afford to carry 5 OLB's, so this will leave at least 1 man out.  Who will that player be?

My guess is that Andre Carter will be traded or released before the season starts.  This has nothing to do with his ability as a player or a person; I just believe he doesn't fit very well as an OLB in the 3-4 defense.  Another thing Carter doesn't do is play special teams.  Besides Orakpo, the other 3 guys on this list all play special teams, and play it pretty well, especially Alexander.  Carter is also the oldest of the five(he is 31). 

 

Is his future in DC?  I don't think so.  Does he have a few more good years left?  Sure, but he probably wont be his best at OLB.  Maybe the Redskins can find a team who needs a stop-gap at DE for a few years, who would be interested in offering a later round pick for Carter, or maybe they could outright release him, so he can choose where he would like to finish his career, but either way, I believe he should be the odd man out.
