, and aims to provide a forum for reader-driven discussion at a time of day when there isn’t much NFL news being published. Feel free to introduce topics that interest you in the comments below.Ryan Kerrigan career statistics (2011-2017)From 2011 to 2017, Ryan Kerrigan started 112 of a possible 112 games.Add to that his two playoff games in 2012 and 2015 versus the Seahawks and the Packers, and his three regular season starts in 2018 against the Cardinals, Colts and Packers and the Redskins’ 2011 first round pick (16th overall) has 115 consecutive regular season starts — 117 including playoffs.The fact that he’s made it through more than 7 seasons without missing a single opening whistle is pretty astounding.But equally impressive is what he’s done with his time on the field. Kerrigan is not a specialty pass-rusher; he is a stand up outside linebacker in a 3-4 base defense who is frequently called upon to drop into coverage.Despite that, Ryan Kerrigan has been a model of consistency when it comes to sacking the quarterback.Across 7 full seasons, he’s been credited with 71.5 sacks, or about 10.2 per year. Damn Skippy!And it’s not like he’s got any outliers.His three lowest sack totals were in his first three seasons, when he accounted for 7.5, 8.5 and 8.5 sacks. That would be a career for many players, but Kerrigan simply got better, piling up 47 sacks in the past 4 years (nearly 12 per season!).But wait, there’s more!Twenty two forced fumbles in seven seasons.Let me repeat that... he’s averaging double-digit sacks, and forcing three fumbles per year (and he’s never had a season without at least two forced fumbles).Just in case you thought I was done Wholesale Dwayne Haskins Jersey

Even if he isn’t ruled out, it’s probably a good idea for the team to consider other options this offseason so they have a plan in place in the event Smith can’t go.
