ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Rams have indeed traded Carriker to the Redskins.
So what did it take to get a former first round pick? Schefter reports the Rams and Redskins simply swapped fifth round picks.
Schefter does note that Albert Haynesworth was NOT included in the deal.
Carriker is 6'6" and 296 pounds so he will likely be a defensive end in the Redskins new scheme.
Carriker, 25, was drafted 10th overall by the Rams in 2007. He missed the 2009 season with a shoulder injury.
