    Guess Haynesworth might get is wish..


    The Rams are close to sending DE Adam Carriker to the Redskins for a 5th-round pick per ESPN's Adam Schefter.

    Re: Adam Carriker traded to Redskins

    Cue DW Toys complaining that we could've had him for a fourth and that there's absolutely no way whatsoever our fourth round pick can outplay Adam Carriker for the duration of his contract.

    Carriker might have been a bad fit in St. Louis, but he's still 3/4 of the way to being a bust. If he isn't one already.

    Wow, another 5th round pick for a fairly recent 1st (Ginn, Holmes, Carriker).

    Re: Adam Carriker traded to Redskins

    It is true and thank you for remembering. I am putting black ribbon around my screen.

    Our #119 pick must be a combination of Reggie White, Tom Brady, John Hannah and Jim Taylor all rolled into one guy>>>Sign the Beast.

    We passed on Holmes, Sheffler and now Carriker for a fifth.

    Let's pencil in #119 as the newest Patriot Hall of Famer...How about a hand to the FO?

    Re: Adam Carriker traded to Redskins

    :confused:

    The Rams have nothing -- literally nothing -- at DL and they let him go for a 5th rounder.

    Is Carriker even any better than, say, Mike Wright? I doubt it.

    Wow, the Rams just swapped 5th round picks (23 spots) with them and gave up Carriker to his old coach Jim Haslett.

    Holy crap... is THAT what you're comparing Carriker to?

    I must be thinking of a different guy.

    He's a fat, injured, bust. He was worth a 7th round pick at best.

    Re: Adam Carriker traded to Redskins

    It's actually not for a 5th. It's for a swap of the teams 5th round picks, so the Skins still have a 5th after the trade. I believe the Rams just pick five places sooner, for the chance to unload Carriker.

    P.S. - Now I would expect Haynesworth to be traded to the Titans tonight, tomorrow, or early Thursday.

    Re: Adam Carriker traded to Redskins

    I am not even going to get into an argument over Carriker.


    But you think maybe BB wants to hold onto that pick. After the first 2 rds we don't have that many picks that can be traded and I doubt BB wants to move one more tradable pick before the draft even starts nor does he want to sit there and watch rds 3-4-5 and not be able to get anything.

    Re: Adam Carriker traded to Redskins

    Hey, it's everybody's favorite draft pick from 2007! Of course, seeing how he turned out, it doesn't surprise me that people haven't learned their lesson and still want Jared Odrick.

    Re: Adam Carriker traded to Redskins

    heh......beats trading a 3rd and a 5th for derrick burgess.......or a 3rd rounder for duane starks, or a 2nd and a 3rd for chad jackson, or a 2nd and a 4th to get bethel johnson

    by many standards, the deal is a great one for the redskins

    Re: Adam Carriker traded to Redskins

    Curious, what is your connection between the two and why Odrick will suck like Carriker?

    Re: Adam Carriker traded to Redskins

    Those trades were brutal. Just one of the many reasons why this team has had a set back.

    Re: Adam Carriker traded to Redskins

    So by the standards of other failed trades, what is almost assuredly another failed move is a great deal for the Redskins.

    Okay, then.

    Re: Adam Carriker traded to Redskins

    No doubt those were bad deals.

    However, they are balanced off by a 4th for Moss, 2nd and 7th for Welker, a 4th for Ted Washington, Trading a 2nd for a 1st the next year which leads to Mayo...

    Some work, some don't.

    Not long ago there was a thread advocating trading one of our seconds for this refuse.

    Re: Adam Carriker traded to Redskins

    If you didn't know, there were rumors that the Pats wanted to trade up for Carriker but there were also mock drafts having Carriker sliding to the Pats with one of their first round picks.

    Now 3 years later, because 3-4 defense ends are scarce and the Pats need a defensive end, mock drafts have the Pats taking (reaching for) Odrick. Since then, most people on this message board have become attached to Odrick like they were to Carriker just because of what they've read in mocks and rumors coming from the Pats.

    I don't know Odrick will suck like Carriker, I just feel there will be better players on the board when the Pats select.

    Re: Adam Carriker traded to Redskins

    Don't forget a 2nd for Corey Dillon. But of course, all of these must have just been luck! The Patriots CANNOT ever trade for players and get anyone good. The Pats front office should learn the ways of true champion, annual contenders- like the Redskins! :rolleyes: :)

    Re: Adam Carriker traded to Redskins

    OH ok that makes some sense. I don't want to over reach for Odrick and I agree we might have better options at 22 but if we were to somehow accuire him without using 22 would you be OK with that.

    Re: Adam Carriker traded to Redskins

    It all depends on who's available and how the draft unfolds.

    The ideal draft for me would be to get a pass rusher, RB that can take it the distance, WR, and either a DE or OL with their last pick in the 2nd round.

    In the 4th round, I want to see the Pats get Brandon Spikes.

    Re: Adam Carriker traded to Redskins

    Corey Dillon was awesome in 2004. But Steven Jackson was the guy I really wanted the Pats to draft for the long term. They could've easily traded up to get him but they already traded for Dillon prior to draft.

    The fruit basket probably would've put the Pats offer over the top. :D


    I'd have taken a flyer on Carriker too.

    Did it ever occur to you that there's a reason why they are trading these players for mid-to-low round draft picks?
