The length is long and Carter will be with whatever team he is on until his late 30s, but the cap hit is absolutely a sweetheart deal at 5.273 million a season.
I mean, hell, Brooks Laich is making only a couple hundred thousand less. I think Carter's contract is going to look more and more realistic as time goes on.
Mostly the length because let's be honest who knows what happens between now and the end of the contract say he goes the way of Scott Gomez then a team like ours is screwed because we can't afford to bury him in the minors
