Redskins acquire TE Carrier from 49ers for undisclosed pick
WASHINGTON (AP) The Washington Redskins acquired tight end Derek Carrier from the San Francisco 49ers on Friday.
Carrier played in 11 games for the 49ers last season, his third in the league, making nine catches for 105 yards. He was originally signed by Oakland in 2012 as an undrafted free agent out of Beloit.
Washington was in need of depth at tight end after losing two of its top three players at the position to season-ending injuries: Niles Paul and Logan Paulsen.
Washington's other tight ends are Jordan Reed, who's been dealing with a hamstring injury, Je'Ronn Hamm, Chase Dixon, Devin Mahina, D.J. Williams and Ernst Brun.
The Redskins gave the 49ers an undisclosed draft choice for Carrier.
