Players separate Carriker and Jarmon after altercation

By Jason Reid

Redskins players had to separate defensive ends Adam Carriker and Jeremy Jarmon after a heated exchange in the weight room at Redskins Park Thursday, several people familiar with the situation said Thursday night.

Teammates rushed in to restrain Carriker and Jarmon, who apparently did not intentionally strike each other during the dust up. It was unclear what ignited the altercation, the sources said, but both players were clearly angry. The news was first reported by CSN Washington.

"Yeah, them boys got to rumbling in the weight room," said one Redskins veteran defensive player, who requested anonymity to speak freely about the private team matter. "A ton of folks had to try and get them guys off each other."

Injured defensive end Phillip Daniels also confirmed the altercation via his Twitter account Thursday evening, downplaying the significance. "Adam and Jeremy did not fight," Daniels tweeted. "The had a small argument which happens all the time. Talked to both of them and a teammate that was in the weight room and they all said it was nothing. Please let them focus on the game at hand."

Carriker, Washington's first-string left end, is in his first year with the team. The Redskins acquired Carriker, a former first-round pick of the St. Louis Rams, in April for draft picks. Listed at 6-foot-6 and 311 pounds, Carriker has started every game for the Redskins (5-9).

The former Nebraska standout has been credited with 27 tackles, including 16 unassisted. He has one pass defended and half a sack.

Washington selected Jarmon in the 2009 supplemental draft. He was considered a rising star with the former regime, but has not fared well in the transition from the base 4-3 defense that the team used for many seasons to Coach Mike Shanahan's 3-4 scheme.

After initially switching Jarmon to outside linebacker in the offseason, the coaching staff moved him back to defensive end. Some Redskins observers considered the former Kentucky standout a long shot to make the 53-man roster, but Jarmon was on it to start the season.

In three games this season, Jarmon has two tackles, one of them unassisted. Jarmon (6-3, 286) was active in 11 games during the 2009 season, starting once.

Two Redskins employees downplayed the argument, saying that Carriker and Jarmon attended a defensive team meeting shortly after being separated. But a team official acknowledged there was a lot of buzz about the incident in the main building of the complex.

Said one Redskins' defensive veteran who declined to intervene: "I'm not trying to get knocked out."

Wow. It's just like the LaCanfora days of RI.

The anonymous chickensh*t player in the article makes it into a full-on throwdown.

But the guy who actually agrees to have his name linked to his quotes, Phillip Daniels, said it was pretty much just an argument.

I'll go with Daniels A) because he had the balls to put his name to his words and B) because he's known as a no-nonsense, character guy.

Don't know what either of these Dudes would have to fight about.

Probably just some dumb misunderstanding -- or something misheard or misunderstood.

Something like Carriker blaming McNabb for being too damn dumb and lazy to execute the wonderboy's magic offensive scheme, while Jarmon countered that it's Kyle's fault for being too damn arrogant and protected by the head coach to be held accountable.

Then a few others in the fringes chimed in with their own impressions -- and things got really heated.

Nice to see these guys still have some fight in them this far into THIS season.

Georgetown didn't lose to Temple, the Duke refs were on hand, allowing the Temple defenders to plow right into the Hoyas.."Life's not fair", said the decaying, rotten meat hanging from the hook..

I'll go out on a limb and guess that the anonymous veteran player wasn't Reed Doughty.

Great to see Redskins who actually will stand up and fight for something! Extend both of them....

Here's what really happened:

Carriker told Jarmon that the Skins were the worst-rated defense in the league, but Jarmon took offense. "We're like 30th, or 31st, not last!" Then Jarmon took a swing at Carriker.

But he missed. So Carriker tried to tackle Jarmon low, but he didn't wrap up his legs so Carriker just flopped on the ground like a fish on the dock.

Jarmon spun back to take another swing, but he fell over Carriker. They ended up rolling around on the floor, flailing helplessly at each other.

The other defenders in the room stood around and did nothing.

So it was pretty much the same as you see on Sundays.

But here's the bad news: Malcomb Kelly got injured just hearing about the fight.

Too bad never player showed that much intensity during a game. Pathetic!!

Yup, it sounds like a typical steroid rage flair up to me. Nothing new.

Probably something silly like one guy didn't wipe his sweat off the bench when he finished his set.

More off the field soap opera drama. The game of football seems to take a backseat in Ashburn!

Adam Carriker is the strongest guy on the team, yes, stronger than Daniels. Heard or read this earlier in the season.

However, I think bench press is used to judge this? I doubt Carriker can squat Daniels 722 lbs, but maybe!

Either way, Jarmon likely got the worst of it.

Stick to football. Unfortunately for the the point you're trying to make, how much one bench presses or squats has absolutely zero to do with how good they are in a fight. if you're a Skins fan you might remember when that skinny guy Michael Westbrook pounded Stephen davis' face in a few years back.......Guess who was BIGGER & STRONGER.

this is what washinginton foreskin football has come to, an article about two bums in a dust up. wow, the worst team north of Charlotte (panthers might win in o.t.) and since 1991 there has been absolutely zippy to talk about but speculation and this crap. when will those cross-dressers take off the 1981 pig snouts is the bigger question? when will they ditch the racist, lame name? when will they get bob marley off the logo? when will that maggot owner sell the team or move them to LA? just get this can of dirty meat off the table, they are a disgrace to pro football.

Seriously, Carriker has 27 tackles? Maybe in his career, maybe.

Isn't Fletcher Smith Carrikers agent? Just sayin.

Who? I think they were arguing whether it was worse to be starter or a backup on the 32nd ranked defense in the NFL.

Posted by: loux24 | December 24, 2010 9:19 AM | Report abuse

This is what really happened. Carlos Rogers was going to pick up a 10 pound plate and dropped it on Carriker's foot. Carriker took a swing at Los22 but missed him and instead hit Jarmon in the back of the head. The two big bulls then charged each other and missed. Both guys were knocked unconscience when they hit the wall. Hunter Smith was seen peeking through the window giggling.

Were they arguing over who is the biggest bust? While a 1st rounder should win that argument every time, Jarmon was a supplemental pick in the 3rd round - no one (except Vinny) takes a player in the 3rd round supp. We could have had a real starter that actually plays (or at least a 7th string WR if Vinny made the pick).

Carriker won't be on the team next and Jarmon will.

Posted by: alocowboy | December 24, 2010 11:22 AM | Report abuse

Hopefully, neither guy will be here next year. How about some actual fight on the field along with some ACTUAL playmaking? The Redskin circus continues. Let's cut the punter again so we can flex a little bit!

Posted by: Cavalier1985 | December 24, 2010 11:57 AM | Report abuse

Well let me see. You say Jarmon was a "rising star" previously. But now with the change to the 3-4, he is out of position and ineffective?

Sound familiar?

Such brilliant decision making.

Posted by: jmueller7 | December 24, 2010 12:15 PM | Report abuse

IMO, Jarmon can still be a rising star.

I think Philip Daniels is done playing, but it'd be great if we could get him to stick around as an asst coach.

TOO FUNNY!!!! I agree with yuou 100%

Posted by: sjsiddiq | December 24, 2010 2:16 PM | Report abuse

Jarmon is probably upset at himself for being a bust and we are all upset at Vinny for giving up too much for Jarmon. Round and round we go.
