Redskins TE Derek Carrier Could Open Season On PUP List


Anthony Gulizia of the Washington Post mentions that Redskins TE Derek Carrier could open the season on the team’s PUP list.

This shouldn’t come as a huge surprise since Carrier sustained a torn ACL and MCL injury back in December.

Should Washington end up placing him on the PUP list at the start of the regular season, it would cost him the first six weeks.

Interesting enough, Gulizia believes that Carrier is on the roster bubble, while TEs Niles Paul, Logan Paulsen and Vernon Davis are ahead of him to make the active roster. This could be a situation to look out for once teams begin trimming their rosters down.

Carrier, 25, 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.

We will provide more information regarding Carrier and the Redskins as the news becomes available.
