Adam Carriker Restructures, Stays with Redskins

by 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.

Carriker co-hosts 4th & Pain Sunday mornings at 8 o’clock on 106.7 The Fan.
