The Washington Redskins have made their second trade in as many weeks, sending tight end Derek Carrier to the Rams. Carrier spent two seasons with the Redskins.
The Washington Redskins on Saturday announced that they have traded tight end Derek Carrier to the Los Angeles Rams in exchange for a seventh-round selection in the 2018 NFL Draft.
Carrier originally joined the Redskins via trade with the San Francisco 49ers in 2015. In two seasons in Washington, the Beloit College product appeared in 20 games and recorded 19 receptions for 151 yards and his first career touchdown against the Atlanta Falcons in 2015.
The 27-year-old suffered a torn ACL and MCL against the Chicago Bears late during the 2015 season but returned to appear in eight games last season with two catches for 10 yards.
Carrier was one of seven tight ends on Washington's 90-man offseason roster joining Jordan Reed, Vernon Davis, Niles Paul, Jeremy Sprinkle, Manasseh Garner and E.J. Bibbs.
