  NFL | Adam Carriker fine physically    Mon Mar 23, 05:18 PM

Free-agent DE Adam Carriker (quadriceps) said he has been physically cleared by Dr. James Andrews, and Carriker said he's feeling great physically. Carriker is expected to draw interest from the 50 scouts that were in attendance at last weekend's veteran combine.

Footballguys view: Carriker was out of the league last season after Washington released him a year ago. He's 30-years old and two years removed from a devastating knee injury. We'll see if Carriker can draw interest now after his performance at the veteran combine.

Free-agent DT Adam Carriker (quadriceps) has recovered from his quadriceps injury and has been cleared to practice.

Carriker might have to wait until after Week 1 of the regular season. At that point, veteran salaries are not guaranteed for the year.
