From Fourth Pain:

Just wanted to pass along that Washington Redskins defensive end Adam Carriker and Chuck Carroll just posted their latest edition of “4th and Pain” — the only wrestling radio show to be hosted by an NFL player.

This week somebody wrote in to ask Carriker, who boasts of having the largest arms on the d-line, if he thinks he could beat ‘The World’s Strongest Man’ Mark Henry in an arm wrestling contest.

Carriker, absolutely thinks he can.

The show can be heard online at

Here Carriker’s response:

“Me. I mean, Mark Henry has claimed to be the World’s Strongest Man for like two decades now. Is he really the World’s Strongest Man still or is that just some title he won’t relinquish.

At some point I’ve got to think you’re not the World’s Strongest Man anymore. I’ve got to think at some point age has caught up with him. He’s been in the business a while… I’m still a young stud.

In all honesty, the man is ridiculously strong. But I think I’ve got the fulcrum points, I’ve got the leverage part. I think I can take him.”

“4th And Pain” can be heard weekly on Also follow the show on Twitter: @4thAndPain
