Draft Scout Derek Carrier News
08/23/15 - TE Derek Carrier was acquired from San Francisco on Aug. 21 for a fifth-round selection in the 2016 draft.
08/21/15 - TE Derek Carrier was traded from the San Francisco 49ers to the Redskins for a 2016 fifth-round pick. Carrier had been pushing to be the 49ers' No. 2 tight end behind Vernon Davis. Carrier signed a modest three-year deal with the 49ers this year and is due $585,00, $800,000 and $950,000 the next three seasons.
11/27/14 - TE Derek Carrier was placed on reserve/injured by the 49ers Thursday (Nov. 27). Carrier (6-4, 241) was signed to the 49ers practice squad on September 3, 2013, after stints with Oakland and Philadelphia. Since being promoted to the active roster on November 16, 2013, he has appeared in 16 games (one start) for the 49ers, including each of the team's 11 contests this season. In 2014, Carrier registered nine receptions for 105 yards.
10/02/14 - TE Derek Carrier has been the healthiest tight end at practice this week, which makes him the most likely to play in Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs. The 49ers are more likely to have second-stringer Vance McDonald (knee) than starter Vernon Davis (back) on Sunday. But even if McDonald is able to play, it surely would not be on a fulltime basis, so Carrier can expect a heavy workload.
09/22/14 - TE Derek Carrier started against Arizona at tight end in the absence of Vernon Davis (ankle) and Vance McDonald (knee) and made one catch for 23 yards in Sunday's loss.
