  • Rams trade Carriker to Skins

    This is coming from a few twitter sources and rotoworld:


    Reports differ on the return. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch says the Rams will receive a fifth-round pick while Scout.com's Adam Caplan reports the Rams will send the fifth-rounder they acquired from Philly to the Redskins. Former Rams coach Jim Haslett has been pushing to be reunited with Carriker since he got the Skins' coordinator job a couple of months ago. The addition of the former No. 13 overall pick makes it much more likely that Albert Haynesworth will be dealt in the next few days.

    Huh? So he's reporting that the Rams gave the Skins a 5th rounder to take Carriker? I'm pretty sure that's not the deal.

        swap of a later 5th of ours and Carriker for their 5th.


        I felt the same way after we traded Witherspoon so I'm reserving judgment, as I got served last time.

          so basically we got Brandon Gibson & an early 5th round pick for Spoon & Carriker..

          neither players we lost were good fits,so i guess if we look at it that way....it don`t look so bad...both may have been cut or in spoons case let to walk...

            KFFL, Stltoday and ESPN all say the Redskins traded a 5th round pick in exchange for Carriker. They say nothing about giving a 5th round pick back.

              So, was he really that bad? Does he have any chance to help the Skins?

                Not much to show for yet another high pick although I agree that judgment should be reserved. A jump from #32 in the 5th (#163 overall) to #4 in the 5th is a good thing. Let's hope, if this deal is confirmed, that whoever gets taken at the new spot will be as promising as WR Gibson; the other part of the Spoon trade.

                Btw, this kinda makes more sense now that DT Gibson & Clifton Ryan have signed.

                I guess Haz didn't get my memo about throwing in London...lol..

                  Oh man, if they traded the philly 5th round pick, that's just pathetic.

                      He will probably start for the Skins at DE. I don't think he was really that bad, just had some bad luck health wise.

                        After he got his injury last season I thought he'd never play a down again for the rams. In training camp last year he was being beaten out of the DT spot by Gibson. So not a great loss but I was always hoping he'd live up to his promise and give the rams a solid interior lineman.

                        Another great Linehan pick...

                          IF he can stay healthy he should offer you guys more than he did us...if he`s gonna make it in the NFL it`s gonna be DE in a 3-4..many including myself have felt that that position was always gonna be the position that suited him best in the NFL, even before he was drafted..we had fools in charge of our ship back then who thought they could fit a square peg into a round hole...

                          i wish him well...he`s a good kid.

                            There definitely seems to be something wrong with our player development. I just can't accept the fact that only 3 or so guys since the 2004 draft are making any sort of impact here.

                                ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH

                                Adam Carriker could see it coming, long before the initial speculation surfaced that he might be traded to the Washington Redskins.

                                "I suppose it's always a surprise when you get traded," the defensive lineman said. "But I know there'd been talks, even before it got out to the media. I knew the talks had gone on, so I wasn't shocked."

                                Rumor became reality last Tuesday, when Carriker was traded to the Redskins. The deal involved only a switch of fifth-round and seventh-round picks by the clubs; the Rams got no extra players or compensation for Carriker, a first-round draft pick out of Nebraska in 2007.

                                The current Rams coaching staff gave up on Carriker even though it saw very little of him on the field. Carriker was just coming back from shoulder surgery when he suffered an ankle injury 10 days into coach Steve Spagnuolo's first Rams training camp last summer. Carriker had just returned from the ankle injury when he suffered a season-ending shoulder injury requiring surgery in the 2009 preseason finale.

                                "It is what it is," Carriker said. "I guess they felt like they got a good enough look at me."

                                Carriker says he's excited about the new career challenge that lies ahead in Washington under veteran NFL head coach Mike Shanahan.

                                "We've struggled here the last few years in St. Louis," Carriker said. "No disrespect to the Rams, but all of a sudden I'm on a team that's made a lot of offseason moves. They're being talked about as a contender, and everybody's excited about the team."

                                Carriker spent a few days in Washington last week following the trade. He was back in St. Louis when he spoke with the Post-Dispatch in a phone interview but heads back to the nation's capital this week to participate in the Redskins' offseason conditioning program.

                                He talked to Shanahan for only a couple of minutes while in Washington last week. "They were getting ready for the draft," Carriker said.

                                But he'll been reunited in Washington with defensive coordinator Jim Haslett, who was Rams coordinator for two of Carriker's three seasons in St. Louis. "Coach Haz is a good coach," Carriker said.

                                In Washington, Carriker will play end in the Redskins' 3-4 alignment, which is considered a more natural position for him than defensive tackle in the Rams' 4-3. But But Carriker took mild offense to being typecast as a 3-4 end only.

                                "I played nose guard here (in St. Louis) my first year and did well at that," he said. "Sometimes I'd play nose guard, (3-technique) defensive tackle, and end all in one series. That happened against San Francisco. You didn't know where you were lining up until...

                                More Nuggets on Rams/Carriker
                                by Nick
                                According to Scout.com, both Scott Linehan and Jim Haslett were present for Nebraska's pro day to watch Adam Carriker, who weighed in at just over 290 pounds. After running another impressive forty (though to be fair it was on a favorable track), Carriker was put through a number of defensive line drills, some of which he had never done before. Reportedly, he looked great.

                                Again, according to Scout.com, the Rams love Carriker's ability as well as his character and personality. But they feel he is capable of playing at defensive tackle and has the ability to comfortably add as much as 35 pounds to his frame.

                                Thoughts?

                                The Redskins have reportedly contacted the Rams about a potential trade for DT Adam Carriker.
                                Carriker has a connection with the Redskins, as new defensive coordinator Jim Haslett coached him in St. Louis. Though he's been injury-plagued the past two seasons, it's hard to picture the Rams trading the former first-rounder unless they go with a defensive tackle at No. 1 overall.

                                St. Louis Rams' Adam Carriker hopes for another chance

                                BY JIM THOMAS
                                ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH

                                Three seasons into his NFL career, defensive tackle Adam Carriker must prove himself all over again and he knows it.

                                "I've definitely got to show myself and play well," Carriker said. "And I'm just looking forward to doing that."

                                Carriker never made it to opening day in 2009, suffering a season-ending shoulder injury in the Rams' preseason finale against Kansas City. Carriker underwent shoulder surgery Sept. 9.

                                Coach Steve Spagnuolo's staff may have a sense of what Carriker can do. But they've seen very little of him in person on the practice field or on game day. Prior to the shoulder injury, he missed three weeks of training camp and three preseason games with an ankle injury.

                                At this point, while the coaching staff and front office sifts through their roster options for 2010, Carriker can't be sure how or even if he fits into the team's plans. But he'd like the opportunity to revive his career for the team that drafted him 13th overall in 2007.

                                "I would love to play here," Carriker said. "I would love to stay here. I've got a home here. The Rams are my home. St. Louis is my home."

                                Nearly four months removed from surgery, Carriker is far along in his rehab program. "After four months, you're pretty much free to lift (weights) with a few restrictions," he said. "But pretty much I'm working on getting my full strength back."

                                Carriker hopes to be full-strength once the Rams begin their offseason conditioning program March 15. "Everything's on schedule, right on par if not a little bit ahead," Carriker said.

                                By the time the Rams reach spring practices and minicamp, Carriker may have competition at defensive tackle from former Nebraska teammate Ndamukong Suh.

                                "Why not? If they feel he's the best player," Carriker said. "That's really up to the guys upstairs. They'll do whatever they think is best for the team."

                                Here's a look at how other Rams are healing from season-ending injuries:

                                WR KEENAN BURTON

                                Burton was leading the Rams in receptions (25) when he suffered a season-ending patellar injury in his right knee Nov. 15 against New Orleans. He had surgery six weeks ago, and says he's on pace to begin jogging next month.

                                Team medical officials have told Burton he's ahead of schedule so far in his rehab, but Burton is unsure whether he'll be able to participate in spring practices. Burton was starting to settle in as an NFL pass-catcher when the injury occurred.

                                "I was feeling like I had been feeling when I was in college," said Burton, who attended Kentucky. "I was getting back to it....
