Carter close; Mahan making rounds



Defensive end Kevin Carter was slated to be in Tampa today, and with any luck, the Bucs are hoping he won't leave without a contract. Talks are ongoing right now and a deal could be struck by the end of the night.

Carter, 33, would add size to the Bucs' defensive line. He is 6-6 and 305 pounds and played left defensive tackle with the Dolphins.

Meanwhile, Bucs free agent guard Sean Mahan, with whom the team is still negotiating, will make visits with the Cleveland Browns today and the Seattle Seahawks on Tuesday, according to

Mahan is in demand because of his versatility. He has the ability to play guard and center, and the Bucs project him as a center in the long run.
