BREAKING: Ryan Kerrigan Staying in NFC East, Signing w/ Eagles

One of the best pass rushers in the of the , , isn't going far from his longtime home in Washington. The is reportedly with the after 10 seasons with the Football Team.

The all-time sack leader for Washington and a four-time Pro Bowler, Kerrigan has been a consistent standout for the last decade. His production has dwindled with age; only 5.5 in each of the last two seasons. But he's also seen fewer snaps recently with four missed games in 2019 and a reduced role in 2020 after Chase Young's arrival.

Now Kerrigan heads to the Eagles and may have better opportunities to get to opposing quarterbacks. Philly had the third-most sacks in the NFL last year with 49 despite no individual standouts; only eight sacks for to lead the team.

Lots of different Eagles registered sacks in 2020. As long as he's still got something in the tank, it's a chance for Ryan Kerrigan to show what he can still do.

Kerrigan's always been an opponent you can respect; one of the go-to names when asked “who's your favorite player from a division rival?” He's someone we never looked forward to seeing when Dallas and Washington met twice a year.

Kerrigan will still get those two annual games against the Cowboys with the Eagles. Now that he's in Philadelphia, I will have to struggle to like him as much as I used to.
