Bio

Ryan Kerrigan is entering his fourth season with the Washington Redskins, fresh off his finest campaign in the NFL. Kerrigan, a hybrid outside linebacker, tied a career-high with 8.5 sacks in 2013, adding a career-high 66 tackles to his output. Kerrigan, combined with Brian Orakpo, gives the Redskins a formidable pass-rushing duo from the outside linebacker position. He is signed with the team through the 2015 season.

Early Years & College

Kerrigan was born in Muncie, Ind., on Aug. 16, 1988. He attended Muncie Central High where he played defensive end and tight end. Kerrigan, a three-star recruit, was named first-team All-State after leading the state of Indiana with 19 sacks. After graduating, Kerrigan went to Purdue University where he was a four-year starter. Kerrigan was named Purdue’s Defensive MVP in 2010, as well as Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year and Big Ten Defensive Lineman of the Year. His 14 career forced fumbles at Purdue set a Big Ten record.

Washington Redskins

The Redskins selected Kerrigan in the first round of the 2011 NFL draft (16th overall). Kerrigan was converted from defensive end to outside linebacker, a move that proved crucial in his rookie debut, in Week 1, when he intercepted a pass and returned it for a touchdown. He recorded his first pro sack the following week. Kerrigan, a Pro Bowl selection in 2012, has amassed 24.5 sacks and 183 tackles in three seasons in Washington. On Jan. 2, 2014, he underwent arthroscopic surgery to repair the lateral meniscus in his left knee. He is not expected to miss any time in 2014.
