He finished the 2009 season with three tackles and one pass defensed. He spent the first three games of the 2010 preseason with the Broncos before being waived/injured on August, 2010 with a hamstring injury.

Broncos In 2011, Dennis Allen was the defensive coordinator with the Broncos.  And in 2011, Tony Carter found himself once again with the Broncos where he saw his most success under Dennis Allen’s tutelage. In October, 2012, against the San Diego Chargers on Monday Night Football, he recovered a fumble and ran 65 yards to score his first career touchdown. He would then intercept Philip Rivers in the 4th quarter. Carter had an interception return for a touchdown in a win November 10, 2012 over the Carolina Panthers.   In September 2013, against the New York Giants, Carter intercepted Eli Manning in the end zone, for his first interception of 2013. On the first play of the fourth quarter, Carter deflected a pass with his foot, which made the ball go right into the hands of teammate Chris Harris. On November 24, against his former team the New England Patriots, Carter made a mistake that cost Denver the game. New England was punting in overtime with a 31-31 score. Punt returner Wes Welker, also a former Patriot, made a “get out of the way” signal. The call was late and did not give Carter time to move away, the football hit Carter’s thigh which made it a free football and Nate Ebner recovered it in Broncos territory, which set up the game-winning 31-yard field goal by Stephen Gostkowski.

Indianapolis Colts  Tony Carter signed with the Indianapolis Colts. He appeared in 3 games before being waived in November.
