SAN JOSE -- The SaberCats announced today that they have acquired defensive lineman Terrance Carter from the Orlando Predators in exchange for offensive lineman Terrence Campbell and defensive lineman Mike Landry. Additionally, San Jose activated fullback Brian Folkerts from recallable reassignment to bring their active roster to 24 players.
“Being able to acquire a big-time player like Terrance in this way is something you don’t typically get the opportunity to do in this league,” said Owner/Head Coach Darren Arbet. “When we had the chance, we had to make the move. He brings a tremendous skillset in rushing the passer that will help us toward our goals in 2013.”
Carter (6-4, 275, Colorado State) has appeared in all three games for the Predators in 2013 thus far and has recorded three total tackles and one sack, which occurred against the SaberCats back on March 29. The three year Arena Football League veteran spent 2012 in Orlando and totaled 14 tackles, six-and-a-half sacks, three forced fumbles and one recovery in 17 appearances. As a member of the Pittsburgh Power in 2011, Carter posted 26.5 total tackles with five sacks and two forced fumbles in 18 games played. As a rookie with the Tulsa Talons in 2010, the former Colorado State Ram made 14.5 tackles adding four-and-a-half sacks, three forced fumbles and one fumble recovery in 11 appearances. In addition to his time in the AFL, he also played for the Talons from 2007-09 in af2.
The Topeka, Kan. native attended Colorado State and was a three-year starter along their defensive line. Throughout his collegiate career, Carter posted 46 total tackles and six sacks in 34 appearances for the Rams. As a senior in 2005, he finished with 23 total tackles (13 solo) with two sacks and one forced fumble.
