DeAndre Carter has officially joined the team on a 1-year deal, and gives them more options on special teams. Washington also signed Adam Humphries who has experience returning kicks, but he said that wasn’t discussed when he was signed.

Carter was an undrafted free agent from Sacramento State who signed with the Baltimore Ravens after the 2015 NFL draft. He bounced around with 4 teams before making the Philadelphia Eagles final roster in 2018. over the last 3 seasons, Carter played for 3 teams, the Eagles, the Houston Texans, and the Chicago Bears. He has mostly been used for kick and punt returns, but he does have 34 receptions for 386 yards along with a rush for 7 yards. Carter has 63 punt returns for 589 yards(9.3 ypr) and 45 kick returns for 983 yards(21.8 ypr). If Carter wants to make the team, he will likely have to do it on special teams.
