DE - PHI
Week 3 Outlook
Former Washington Football Team DE Ryan Kerrigan announced on Instagram that he’s signing with the Philadelphia Eagles.
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.
Current free-agent DE Ryan Kerrigan is reportedly visiting with the Cincinnati Bengals on Wednesday, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
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 ended Sunday’s 34-17 loss to the New York Jets with four solo tackles, two sacks, and a forced fumble.
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 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.
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.
Liz Clarke of the Washington Posts reports that "Outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan, who broke a bone in his right hand in the 31-30 victory over Tampa Bay, was a full participant in the early portion of practice thatâ€™s open to the media. Kerrigan worked with a heavy bandage on his hand."
Along with DeAngelo Hall and Chris Culliver, it looks the defense is getting as many reinforcements back as possible before their match up with New England. Kerrigan had 16 combined tackles and 3.5 sacks in his first seven games this season.
