Is Jim Hasslett drawing interested in one of his own? Football News Now is reporting that St. Louis Rams Adam Carriker, defensive end, is drawing interest from the Washington Redskins.
“The Washington Redskins have contacted the St. Louis Rams about a possible trade for defensive lineman Adam Carriker.
Newly hired Redskins defensive coordinator Jim Haslett is reportedly high on the 25-year-old according to Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network.
Drafted 13th overall in 2007 by the Rams, Carriker has drawn criticism by some who feel he hasn’t lived up to his potential.
A trade appears the only method for him to come to town. Who then would be a viable chip to trade? Perhaps Andre Carter may be a worthy choice for barter. Carter came to Washington to escape the 3-4. Last year the Carter stepped up big time nabbing sacks in the double digits and the Rams would be getting a physical defensive end in return. However, according to my sources, linebacker is not quite a position of “tremendous” need, I would be interested if this interest is facilitated further.
