Former Redskins DE Adam Carriker announced his retirement in a Facebook post on Sunday.
"I've known for months I was done with football and I was going to retire. I just never announced it," Carriker said. "But now is as good a time as any." Carriker said he was close to signing a contract following the veteran combine last spring, but decided the deal was not best for his family. A first-round pick of the Rams in 2007, Carriker's career was derailed by recurring quad injuries. He has not played a snap since 2012 and was released by the Redskins in 2014. Carriker recorded nine sacks and 125 tackles across 65 career games. Mon, Dec 14, 2015 01:17:00 PM

Free agent DL Adam Carriker is trying out for the Falcons.

He's participating in this week's veteran minicamp. Going on 31, Carriker has just two appearances since the end of the 2011 season. Quad issues cost him all but two games in 2012-13, and he went unsigned last season. He'll be a long-shot to crack the 53-man roster if the Falcons take a flier.

Free agent DL Adam Carriker (quad) is healthy and has been cleared.

Carriker posted a video of himself deadlifting 505 pounds Thursday, and now just needs a team to sign him. The Redskins seemed interested in a possible reunion after they released the 30-year-old in March, but ended up signing Jason Hatcher to a big-money deal and handing Chris Baker an extension. Carriker has missed 30 consecutive games and wasn't very good in 2011.

Free agent DL Adam Carriker insists he is healthy.

Carriker, who has missed 30 straight games due to recurring quad issues, has garnered no known interest since the Redskins cut him in March. He's trying to drum up nibbles by posting a video of himself deadlifting 505 pounds (video attached below). Perhaps teams would be more enthused if Carriker wasn't one of the worst 3-4 ends in the league in 2011, the last time he was healthy.

Three sources tell ESPN Radio 980 the Redskins will give free agent DE Adam Carriker a chance to prove his health in June.

This contradicts a report from ESPN's John Keim that the Redskins are unlikely to re-sign Carriker. No matter where he lands, health will certainly be the main concern for a player who has missed 30-of-32 games the past two seasons.
Tue, Mar 4, 2014 09:40:00 PM

A team source tells ESPN's John Keim the Redskins don't plan to re-sign free agent DE Adam Carriker at a lower price.

With Carriker going on 30 and having missed 30-of-32 games the past two years, the Redskins are ready to move on. He was released with a "failed physical" designation. Carriker admitted last month that his quad still wasn't 100 percent, but said he expected to be ready for training camp. Carriker's health ensures that he'll be passed over in the first wave of free agency.

Redskins released DE Adam Carriker.

This move was fully expected and saves the Redskins $2.989 million against the cap. Carriker is still working his way back from three surgeries on his right quad that have caused him to miss the past 30 games. Carriker, the 13th overall pick by the Rams in 2007, admits he's not yet 100 percent but expects to be ready for training camp. He'll have to prove he's healthy before landing a deal.

Redskins DE Adam Carriker (quad) admits he's still not 100 percent but anticipates being ready for training camp.

Carriker said he noticed a big jump in his recovery once the season ended and has started running without discomfort. He's not sure if he'll be ready for minicamp or OTAs, but admits he's progressed quite a bit. Carriker has missed the past 30 regular season games after undergoing three surgeries on his right quad. The Redskins are expected to release Carriker, saving $3 million.

The Redskins are expected to release DE Adam Carriker.

Carriker hasn't played since Week 2 of the 2012 season due to a severe quad injury that has suffered multiple setbacks. Releasing Carriker should be an easy decision for the Redskins, who can save nearly $3 million against the cap with the move. Carriker turns 30 in May and will have to prove he's healthy.

Updating a previous item, Redskins DE Adam Carriker (quad) practiced Tuesday.

Multiple reports over the last week stated that Carriker was done for the season, but the Redskins aren't ready to make that call just yet. They'll let their oft-injured veteran try to show well enough over the next three weeks to get back on the active roster. Carriker hasn't played since tearing his quad in Week 3 of the 2012 season. He's still a long-shot to suit up this year.
Wed, Nov 20, 2013 08:03:00 AM

Redskins DE Adam Carriker (quad, PUP) will not play this season.

Carriker tore his quad in Week 2 of the 2012 season and has undergone three separate surgeries since. He's also suffered numerous setbacks, while there were reports the former Rams first-round pick's career could be in jeopardy. Carriker likely won't be back in Washington at his $4.7 million salary in 2014.
Wed, Nov 13, 2013 03:01:00 PM

Redskins placed DE Adam Carriker (torn quad) on the reserve/PUP list.

Carriker is dicey to play this season after undergoing surgery in late July. He's suffered a number of setbacks after first going down late September. Carriker won't be returning to a starting job if he ever makes it off PUP.
Tue, Aug 27, 2013 04:49:00 PM

Despite his third surgery to repair a torn quadriceps, Redskins DE Adam Carriker insists he'll play this season.

Carriker is out indefinitely after last Thursday's procedure. "I’m gonna be back at some point this year," he said. "I have little to no doubt in my mind. I don’t know exactly when that’s going to be. It’s gonna depend on how the rehab process goes." There were reports Carriker's career could be in jeopardy, but that doesn't appear to be the case. The Redskins are proceeding as if Carriker won't contribute this season.
Tue, Jul 30, 2013 09:33:00 PM

Coach Mike Shanahan says DE Adam Carriker faces a 4-5 month recovery following a third surgery on his torn quadriceps.

Carriker underwent successful surgery on Thursday. The 29-year-old suffered the injury in Week 2 last season, and he has had numerous setbacks. The former first-round pick's career is even considered to be in jeopardy. Stephen Bowen and Jarvis Jenkins will open the season as the Redskins' starting ends.
Thu, Jul 25, 2013 05:55:00 PM

Redskins DE Adam Carriker will undergo another surgery on his torn right quadriceps on Thursday.

He's out indefinitely. Carriker has experienced numerous setbacks as he recovers from last year's injury, and opened camp on the PUP list. He'll also likely now open the season on reserve/PUP, costing Carriker the first six games. Stephen Bowen and Jarvis Jenkins will be Washington's Week 1 starting ends.
