Washington Redskins LB Ryan Kerrigan signed a five-year contract extension Wednesday, July 29, worth $11.5 million per season, according to a source. The deal includes a $16 million signing bonus.
Huddle Up: Kerrigan was entering the final year of his rookie deal but now is the league's third-highest-paid LB. He had a career-high 13.5 sacks last season and five forced fumbles. Since entering the league in 2011, he has 15 forced fumbles -- second only to CB Charles Tillman (16) -- and is certainly a player the defense-needy D.C. franchise needed to lock up.

Washington Redskins LB Ryan Kerrigan said his rehab from knee surgery is going well and that he has been able to start running. Kerrigan said he is focused on building strength in the surgically repaired knee.
Huddle Up: Sounds like all is going as well as expected for the LB who hasn't missed a start in four seasons and hit career highs a year ago with 13.5 sacks, 51 solo tackles and five forced fumbles. IDP leaguers, though, will need to continue to monitor his progress in training camp.

Washington Redskins LB Ryan Kerrigan saw his sack total remain the same from 2012 to 2013, his forced fumbles and tackle totals increase, but his pass breakups dipped. Still, he has been very consistent. However, he is aiming higher in 2014. 'I'm tired of being consistent,' Kerrigan said. 'I want to be consistently really, really good. I don't want to be just consistently average anymore. I want to be consistently good.'
Huddle Up: Kerrigan has been stuck in the 7.5-8.5 sack range, and he'll at least know the system with DC Jim Haslett being retained by the new coaching staff. We'll see if that -- and the presence of second-round pick Troy Murphy -- will result in some statistical bumps.

Washington Redskins LB Ryan Kerrigan, the 16th overall pick of the 2011 draft, won Defensive Rookie of the Month for September.
Huddle Up: The ex-Boilermaker is a top-30 IDP LB with 17 tackles, two sacks, two forced fumbles, and one INT that he returned for a touchdown in Week 1. Kerrigan is a big reason why the Redskins are tied for the lead in sacks (15) and rank fifth in total defense.
