Reporting Chuck Carroll
LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — The Redskins and Adam Carriker have agreed to terms on a restructured contract that will keep the defensive end in Washington.
Carriker says it is a shame the NFL docked the team $36 million in salary cap space.
“I was willing to do whatever it took to help the team,” Carriker said.
Carriker’s 2012 campaign was cut short by a torn quad tendon, suffered in Week 2 against the St. Louis Rams. He was placed on injured reserve after undergoing surgery to repair the tear.
He was due a base salary of $4.75 million in 2013 prior restructuring his contract. The final two years of his contract were not impacted by the reworked deal.
Carriker, who signed a four-year deal last offseason, remains under contract through 2015.
