WATCH: Free agent DE Adam Carriker lifts a whole bunch of weight
Defensive end Adam Carriker would like a job. So, he presents to you a video of him lifting 505 pounds.
In the past two years, defensive end Adam Carriker has seen almost zero time on the field, and, not surprisingly, he was terminated by the Redskins last March. Four months later, the 30-year-old is still a free agent.
Carriker signed a four-year, $20 million deal in 2012, but a serious quadriceps injury led to three surgeries and the ability for him to play only two games in the past two years. As such, teams who might have an interest in signing him (or working him out) probably are skeptical about his health.
Which is probably why he released this Instagram video of himself lifting a bunch of weight. As you can see here ...
As Carriker wrote on his page, "Each week a fan will ask how my leg is doing and when I'll be back on the football field. My answer has simply been that I'm focused and working hard. Yesterday, I did the hex bar dead lift for 2 reps at 505lbs. #LargestArmsOnTheDLine is not just strong...he is healthy."
