NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Jets have signed free-agent linebacker Bruce Carter to a one-year contract.

Carter is expected to compete with the recently re-signed Erin Henderson for the middle linebacker spot opposite David Harris.

Carter spent last season with Tampa Bay after playing four years with Dallas, which drafted him in the second round out of North Carolina in 2011. He was released by the Buccaneers last month, and chose to join the Jets after also drawing interest from Buffalo and Detroit.

The signing Monday gives the Jets a versatile player in the speedy Carter, who has played various spots at the linebacker position throughout his career. He has five career interceptions - all with the Cowboys in 2014 - along with five sacks.
