Oakland Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie continues his offseason of bringing in veterans on short-term deals. Tuesday, defensive end Andre Carter agreed to terms on a one-year deal to come back to the Raiders, according to his agent. 

A 12-year veteran, Carter recorded 19 tackles, 2.5 sacks and a forced fumble in 12 games last season.

He was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2011 with the Patriots, when he made headlines by setting the Patriots single-game record with four sacks. Unfortunately, an injury in December forced him to miss the remainder of the season.

Drafted No. 7 overall by the 49ers in 2001, Carter spent five years in San Francisco before moving on to five more years in Washington with the Redskins. He has recorded 10 or more sacks in four different season throughout his career.
