Jaguars signed DT David Carter, LB Josh Hull, and WR Kenny Shaw.
26-year-old Carter played just 91 defensive snaps with Dallas last season, but appeared in all 32 games for the Cardinals from 2011-2012. Hull is a five-year veteran that should compete for a role on special teams. A UDFA out of Florida State, Shaw was released by Cleveland last month. Sat, Aug 2, 2014 02:39:00 PM

Free agent DT David Carter is participating in Titans rookie minicamp on a tryout basis.

Carter is a former sixth-round pick out of UCLA by the Cardinals. He appeared in all 32 games for then-DC Ray Horton's Cardinals from 2011-2012. Horton now runs the defense in Tennessee. Carter has 29 career tackles and one sack.

Cowboys signed DL David Carter.

DT Landon Cohen was waived in a corresponding roster move. A 2011 sixth-round pick of the Cardinals, Carter appeared in all 16 games last season, making four starts. Although he's just a depth signing, Carter should see snaps along the Cowboys' wafer thin defensive line.

Cardinals waived/released DL David Carter, OG Chilo Rachal, S Jonathon Amaya, WR Charles Hawkins, WR Dan Buckner, C Adam Bice, G/C Senio Kelemete, TE Alex Gottlieb, S Curtis Taylor, LB Colin Parker, and OLB Zack Nash.

A previous item claimed WR Kerry Taylor was cut, but he was not. We regret the error. Carter is the most surprising cut of this group. He played extensively last season, but had no ties to Arizona's new coaching staff.

Cardinals sixth-round rookie David Carter has been installed as Dan Williams' backup at nose tackle.

Carter is "just" 6'5/297, shaped more like a defensive end than a nose tackle for a 3-4 scheme. He's much more physically fit than Williams, though, and the Cardinals sound excited about Carter's progress. "Just seems every time we have practice or any kind of situation, he shows up," coach Ken Whisenhunt said.

Cardinals selected UCLA DT David Carter with the No. 184 overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft.

A reserve his first three seasons at UCLA, Carter broke out for 41 tackles and four sacks last season. Has great explosiveness and lateral quickness, but needs to work on his technique, particularly with his hands. A great upside pick, he could prove to be a day-three steal for the Cardinals.
