In his first three seasons the man has been a statistical stuffer. He has recorded 24.5 sacks, 2 interceptions, as well as 183 total tackles. The man’s name is Ryan Kerrigan and in his career with the Washington Redskins has been recognized as one of the team’s premier defensive players. Kerrigan, however, endured a torn lateral meniscus in week three of the 2013 season, which limited his effectiveness throughout the year.
The Purdue product underwent knee surgery on his left knee at the season’s conclusion and reportedly feels “pretty much 100%” with the 2014 season quickly approaching. The Redskins need Kerrigan to return to form if the team hopes to make another run at an NFC East title and improve from their horrendous 3-13 finish a season ago.
The report comes in the midst of a free agent frenzy surrounding DeSean Jackson’s visit to Washington today. More information has surfaced, and it appears that Jackson met with quarterback Robert Griffin III about the possibility of wearing the burgundy and gold. Jackson will demand between $9-10 million dollars from his possibly suitors, and the Redskins have made it clear they are “all in” for D-Jax.
Washington knows Jackson’s play-making abilities will catapult the mediocre offense into elite status, and despite Jackson’s personality flaws, the team hopes to acquire the former Philadelphia Eagle.
