The St. Louis Rams have shipped defensive lineman Adam Carriker to the Washington Redskins.
Adam Schefter reported the trade on ESPN. Schefter didn’t have the terms of the trade, but he did report that the trade does not involve Albert Haynesworth.
Still, the trade — like Monday’s acquisition of Howard Green — is yet another sign that the Redskins are seeking to beef up their defensive line, which could be a sign that they would like to deal Haynesworth.
We noted a month ago that the Redskins had contacted the Rams about Carriker.
Carriker started all 16 games as a rookie after the Rams chose him in the first round of the 2007 draft, but he started only nine games in 2008 and missed the entire 2009 season after suffering a serious shoulder injury.
UPDATE: The Redskins acquired Carriker for the low, low price of a move down 28 spots in the fifth round, according to Schefter. That’s it.
