It could be possible that the Redskins are just trying to discern whether or not the Rams take Bradford or Suh with that first pick.

They could be dangling a carrot, feigning interest in Carriker. If the Rams open serious discussions, it could be a strong indication that St Louis intends to select Suh with the first pick.

If they show no interests in trade discussions, it cold indicate that they will take Bradford.

Total speculation on my part, but it is an interesting way to get the other guy to "show his hand".

That way the Redskins draft strategy in the first round could be worked on.
I think you're pretty on point in your assessment

Re: JLC: Redskins Interested in Adam Carriker

I don't think we should be looking at a Carter trade and a Carriker trade as necessarily being one and the same. Though I believe Carter is more likely to go than Carriker is to arrive. Pure speculation though

Could have sworn he had waived that no trade clause, guess I was wrong.

Also a little off topic, does anyone know any of the other Redskins with no-trade clauses in their contracts?

I saw a Gibbs interview and he was talking about when he came to the team and was trying to get Riggens back and finally convinced him all the while planning to trade him as soon as he could. Then Riggens made one stipulation in coming back. A no-trade clause. It was hilarious to watch Gibbs and Riggens tell that story.
I agree... I don't see Andre accepting a trade w/ the Rams... especially with the possibility of the Redskins releasing him, allowing him to be a free agent.

The thought is devilishly devious but it's not really a very useful thing for the Redskins to do. That's because the Skins pick 4th and there are really only five players who might be in play for picks number one through three. They are Bradford, Suh, McCoy, Okung, Berry, and Clausen. So, the Skins aren't going to have much difficulty in looking at the possibilities and devising a strategy for each scenario. And they'll also have their draft board as a tool.

But, if the Skins have a legitimate interest in Carriker and can trade for him, that might have the added benefit of influencing St Louis to lean more toward drafting one of the DT's.

Re: JLC: Redskins Interested in Adam Carriker

I'm sure I heard JLC say on NFLN that Haslett has no experience running the 3-4 defense. That would concern me if that's true.

He was d-coordinator for Pittsburgh a few years ago..I'm pretty sure they played the 3-4.

Re: JLC: Redskins Interested in Adam Carriker

I heard the same thing, but its Jlac so he doesn't know that much, because Haslett does have experience with the 3-4 back in the late 1990's with Pittsburgh.

Re: JLC: Redskins Interested in Adam Carriker

Thanks for clearing that up Ruh' and Cult'. JLC is so weak on NFLN. How did he get that gig?

Re: JLC: Redskins Interested in Adam Carriker

Anyone besides me remember when Haslett played linebacker for the Buffalo Bills? LOL I know someone else remembers when he played. Dmek? 70CHip...c'mon guys!

By the way, he was damn good too.

So do you think Mark Bulger and Carriker could come here as a part of a larger deal?

Hadn't really thought about Bulger. I'd be surprised

Re: JLC: Redskins Interested in Adam Carriker

I do need to point out that defensive ends/olb types still put their hands in the dirt more than half the time even in 3-4 alignments. Teams play a lot of 3 WR sets these days, and nickel defenses generally (but not necessarily) mean four lineman.

If Carter became exclusively a nickle package player, he'd still be a good bet for 5-6 sacks. And at what cost would it be worth it to give that away on the market and replace him with a 2-3 sack replacement player (Rob Jackson?) in the same role?

Certainly, we'd have to get something valuable, third round or better, to do that trade.
