Topic - Ryan Kerrigan
Washington Redskins linebacker Ryan Kerrigan dropped by the Indiana elementary school he once attended to rally its students to do well on their ISTEP+ exams.
Nothing happens in a vacuum in the salary-capped environment of the NFL. Here are five ripple effects from the decision to tag Brian Orakpo.
In a salary capped league, nothing happens in a vacuum. What effect will Brian Orakpo's franchise tag have on Ryan Kerrigan's future?
With Brian Orakpo back via the franchise tag, the pressure will be on Jim Haslett to field a top-notch defense.
If the Redskins don't re-sign Brian Orakpo, should they pursue Pittsburgh's Jason Worilds?
Jim Haslett will be able to run the defense his way this year and he says we'll see more pass pressure from the outside linebackers.
One position where the Redskins are in pretty good shape heading into the 2014 season is outside linebacker. As long as Brian Orakpo is re-signed, that is.
Redskins draft rewind: Ryan Kerrigan hasn't been a disappointment after being picked 16th in 2011 but there is potential for him to do more.
Ryan Kerrigan stopped by Redskins Nation to talk about the team's new coach and the future of the team.
The Redskins have some options regarding Ryan Kerrigan's contract but they have some time to decide what do to.
A federal judge denied preliminary approval of a $765 million settlement of NFL concussion claims, fearing it may not be enough to cover 20,000 retired players.
Need to Know: The Mike Shanahan era is over but it will be a while before we can give it a final grade.
Within 48 hours of the final contest ending, the Redskins could have moved on from Mike Shanahan and his coaching staff and turned in a new direction. Again. Players will have packed their gear and most will have headed back to their offseason homes to lick their wounds. The question between now and then: How do you get through that final game when there is nothing at stake.
Orakpo signed a five-year, $15.4 million contract just before training camp opened in 2009, after he was the No. 13 pick in that year's draft. He has routinely maintained that he would like to stay in Washington, but with the season not yet over, he has downplayed all talk of what will happen when free agency opens in March.
The Redskins defense held up its end of the deal in the team's loss to Atlanta.
"[Green Bay] quit doing as much drop back [passing] and they just were three steps, getting rid of the ball," Kerrigan said about the Packers in Sunday's loss. "That [stinks] for a guy that's rushing the passer a lot."
"That's the worst thing about football, seeing guys go down, especially those head injuries," linebacker Ryan Kerrigan said. "Hopefully he can come back because he's a difference-maker out there."
