This morning on CSN Washington, I posted an article about some of the favorable trades that the Redskins have made since Mike Shanahan and Bruce Allen came aboard in 2010. A few folks on Twitter pointed out that I neglected to mention the Adam Carriker trade.
That one took place in April of 2010. The Redskins did not give up any draft picks to the Rams in the deal. They swapped draft positions with St. Louis in the fifth and seventh rounds. In the fifth, the Redskins moved down from overall pick No. 135 to No. 163. In the seventh, Washington moved up from No. 211 to No. 208.
The Redksins used both of those picks in deals for other draft selections so it is hard to say exactly what they gave up for Carriker. Still, it
The defensive end found a home in Washington's 3-4 defense after struggling in the Rams' 4-3 scheme. He started all 16 games at left defensive end for the Redskins this year.
