Ryan Kerrigan LB WAS 1 Month

Redskins OLB Ryan Kerrigan said he wants to be with the team for years to come.

Kerrigan has two years left on his deal after the Redskins exercised his 2015 option for $7.038 million. But he says "hopefully after that," he'll be in D.C. "even longer." Kerrigan has 24.5 sacks through three seasons, never finishing a season with fewer than 7.5 or more than 8.5. As long as he keeps producing at a steady clip, Kerrigan should have no trouble netting a healthy payday.

Redskins exercised OLB Ryan Kerrigan's fifth-year club option for 2015.

That's huge for Washington, as Brian Orakpo is playing on the franchise tag and the team has no pass-rush depth behind he and Kerrigan. Kerrigan has 24.5 sacks through his first three seasons and tied for the fifth-most QB hurries among 3-4 outside 'backers in 2013.
