Kerrigan Out? Says Goodbye To Washington Fans On Instagram

Ryan Kerrigan’s time in Washington appears to have come to an end. After a decade in the DMV, the once prodigal son looks to be moving on to greener pastures.

The 32-year old is still a free agent. But his post on Instagram last night seems to indicate that wherever he does end up in 2021, it won’t be in Washington.

Redskins Sign DE To Kick Off Free Agency

The new Redskins General Manager Scot McCloughan wasted little time in getting active in free agency, by signing former Indianapolis Colts defensive lineman Ricky Jean-Francois. The deal is reportedly a 3 year deal worth $9 million with $4 million guaranteed; but could be worth as much as $11.25 million with incentives, according to his agent Drew Rosenhaus.

Lee and Golston Inked

The Redskins made a couple of depth moves today, signing offensive tackle James Lee, and re-signing defensive lineman Kedric Golston.

You know what they say about opinions…
I have no idea what the next few weeks may hold… but I suspect that there is some fun afoot.

My plan?
Re-sign Campbell. Work on building an OL for the future. If a QB falls to us, fine. But, what the heck… nobody listens to me since my dog died.
