Washington placed Carrier on the PUP list back in July due to torn ACL and MCL injuries he sustained in December of last year.
Carrier, 26, came over in a trade with the 49ers that sent a 2017 conditional fifth round pick to San Francisco. He’s entering the second year of his three-year, $2.985 million contract that included a $400,000 signing bonus.
Carrier will make a base salary of $800,000 this season and another $950,000 next year.
In 2015, he appeared in 12 games and recorded 17 receptions for 141 yards receiving and a touchdown.
