Carriker traded to Wash

It finally happened. Just read it on the Washington Post

 


Rams trade Adam Carriker to Redskins


Updated at 3:55 p.m.

The Redskins have acquired defensive tackle Adam Carriker, a former first-round draft pick, from the St. Louis Rams, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. To obtain Carriker, the Redskins swapped fifth-round picks with the Rams, moving down from No. 135 overall to 163.

A Nebraska product who played defensive end in college, Carriker was the Rams' 13th overall pick in the 2007 draft and lined up as a three-technique tackle. Redskins defensive coordinator Jim Haslett was the St. Louis coordinator at the time and found success with Carriker, who was the team's top rookie performer in '07.

Carriker missed all of the 2009 season after tearing a muscle in his shoulder late in the preseason. He underwent surgery and spent the year on injured reserves. In essentially two seasons of playing, Carriker has started 25 games and played a role 53 tackles and two sacks. He has two years remaining on his rookie contract; he is due $1.07 million this season, $1.42 million in '11.

The Redskins have clearly made the defensive line a priority this offseason. Carriker is the fifth linemen they've picked up since free agency began. On Monday, they signed Howard Green to a one-year contract and they'd previously signed Anthony Bryant, Maake Kemoeatu and Greg Peterson.

With all those additions, it certainly casts even more uncertainty on Albert Haynesworth's future with the team
