I've been here before to share interviews with Sha'Reff Rashad, Reed Doughty, Anthony Armstrong, and Phillip Daniels and also the first ever NFL game that I covered was the Redskins loss to the Colts and Peyton Manning back in 2010. I'm currently a high school senior and deciding on college, and I hope some of you remember me. I'm here to share an interview with Adam Carriker. I think he was one of my best interviews recently. We talked about everything from Ndamukong Suh, Bill Callahan, Star Wars, WWE, Husker football, Rams, and more.
Here is the link to the FULL interview, http://prointerviews.org/AdamCarriker! If you want to read a teaser, take the jump!
Strauss : What happened with the trade?
Carriker : It obviously didn’t work out in St. Louis. Basically, I heard the redskins were trying to trade for me, I knew they really wanted me and I went to work just like any other day. It was in the offseason, I worked out with my teammates I was getting ready to go home and spend the weekend with friends coming in to town when they said, ‘Coach needs to see you in his office.’ which wasn’t extremely unordinary I’d gone up to talk to coach many times. I walked in to room and the head coach and GM were there. I knew immediately I’d been traded. Three hours later, I was on a flight half way across country and kind of my whole life changed, so that’s how that worked.
Strauss : What’s it been like in D.C. the last couple years?
Carriker : We’ve won a few more games but not near as many as I’d like to. I won six games in my first three years and six more my fourth year and that’s only a 6-10 season I asked my wife if it was bad I doubled my win total in one year, and not even a good year. Since I got here, there are a lot of good guys on the team. Actually a lot of the guys on the team have changed since I first got here. Very few guys are still here from when I got here, but the fans are great. They go crazy every game and sell out we have great fans. I like it here so far.
