I remember Carstens. He was pretty good, but a health condition forced him out.

Always hated that we lost him.

Yep, Carstens was a solid DT. Didn't he have a heart issue or something like that? Hope he's doing okay these days.

Yeah Carstens had the heart thing. I don't remember the details anymore but he was arguably our best DT in 2005 when Jenkins was out and Buckner was showing his age.

Actually Carstens retired because of a kidney related disease. He couldn't afford to take hits and potentially ruin his kidneys.
