With Hall already gone, is Moss next out the door?

For a while, it looked like the Redskins were going to have to part ways with defensive lineman Adam Carriker due to salary cap issues. But the popular end is going nowhere.

Carriker has agreed to restructure his contract, according to media reports. He was slated to make a base salary of $3.7 million this year and a roster bonus of $250,000 and a workout bonus of $50,000.

He told reporters that the changes to his contract were for this year only so it is likely that he took a pay cut for this year rather than a simple restructure. Carriker may have agreed to reductions in his base pay or the bonuses or both.

Carriker was the starter at left defensive end when the season started but his year ended early. He suffered a torn quad tendon in the second game of the season and he was put on injured reserve.

Carriker came to the Redskins in a trade in 2010 after spending his first three NFL seasons with the Rams.

I'm glad to be able to help the team. #SuperBowlMotivated #HTTR
