Ryan Kerrigan announces he's retiring as a Commander

Edge rusher Ryan Kerrigan announces his retirement after 11 seasons in the NFL, signing a deal to retire a Washington Commander.

Fantasy Impact

Kerrigan was drafted by Washington with the 16th pick in the 2011 NFL Draft. Over 10 seasons with Washington, Kerrigan made the Pro Bowl four times and led the league in forced fumbles and tackles for loss once each. He had four seasons of 10-plus sacks and regularly got to the quarterback with 13 or more QB hits in eight seasons. He spent his final season in Philadelphia but is signing a deal to end his career with his original team.

Ryan Kerrigan announces he’s signing with the Eagles

Former Washington Football Team DE Ryan Kerrigan announced on Instagram that he’s signing with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Impact

Kerrigan stays in the NFC East and joins the Eagles after racking up 95.5 sacks in 10 seasons in Washington. This is a very nice veteran pickup for an Eagles team that was lacking depth on the defensive front.

Ryan Kerrigan visiting with the Bengals on Wednesday

Current free-agent DE Ryan Kerrigan is reportedly visiting with the Cincinnati Bengals on Wednesday, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Impact

Kerrigan remains with the Washington Football Team for now but will make a free-agent visit with the Bengals on Wednesday. Cincinnati has made several free-agent acquisitions to improve its defensive unit but signing Kerrigan would be the crown jewel. The 32-year old defensive end is the all-time sack leader for Washington (95.5 sacks across 10 seasons) and would bolster the edge rush for the Bengals alongside former Ohio State DE Sam Hubbard. Washington would also like to bring Kerrigan back for his 11th season in 2021, so he will likely have a few options to weigh before making a final decision on his future home.

Ryan Kerrigan has two sacks in Sunday’s loss

Ryan Kerrigan ended Sunday’s 34-17 loss to the New York Jets with four solo tackles, two sacks, and a forced fumble.

Fantasy Impact

Kerrigan is having a slow year totaling 20 total tackles, four sacks, and one forced fumble through Week 11. He should be left on waivers and is considered a matchup dependent IDP option.

Ryan Kerrigan has huge game in Week 7

Ryan Kerrigan recorded four solo tackles, one assisted tackle, one tackle for loss, one pass defensed, one forced fumble, and two sacks in Washington's Week 7 victory over the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact

Kerrigan is capable of this kind of production, but he's been a huge disappointment to this point in the season. With three sacks in his last three games, though, Kerrigan's arrow is pointing up. Consider picking him up if he was dropped in your league.
