- The Washington Times - Saturday, September 2, 2017

The Redskins traded tight end Derek Carrier to the Los Angeles Rams, the team confirmed Saturday afternoon. 

In exchange, Washington got an additional seventh-round pick in the 2018 draft. 

Had he not been traded, the Redskins likely would have released Carrier ahead of the 4 p.m. roster cutdown to 53 players. There is considerable depth at tight end in Jordan Reed, Vernon Davis, Niles Paul and rookie Jeremy Sprinkle.
