The Rams have traded DT Adam Carriker to Redskins for a fifth-round pick, according to league source.
Carriker was a first round pick just a few years ago but has not panned out. Washington's defensive coordinator Jim Haslett was with St. Louis when Carriker was drafted.
The Redskins have long been interested in Carriker, with their intent to acquire him first reported on NFL Network and NFL.com about six weeks ago. The move is another toward fortifying the defensive line with the Redskins exploring options to trade Albert Haynesworth this week, while lacking a second and third round pick.
