Adam Carriker Resembles ‘Ivan Drago’?

It recently came to my attention, via an interview on AM 1620 in Omaha, that some think Redskins defensive Adam Carriker looks like the Russian fighter ‘Ivan Drago’ from Rocky IV, played by Swedish actor Dolph Lundgren.

Certainly both are physical specimens, with Lungren standing 6-6, 250 pounds in his Rocky-prime.  Carriker is also 6-6, and his NFL playing weight is 315 pounds.

For the record, I don’t see the resemblance, but here’s the audio from his interview on the “Schick and Nick” show:

I chatted with Carriker briefly this morning, who reiterated that he doesn’t see the resemblance and neither does his wife.  But as far as taking a compliment for looking like Lundgren, he’s not about to complain.

“I think everyone who says it is just jealous of my good looks,” he joked.
