On Monday, Kerrigan bid farewell to Washington with a post on social media. He had been drafted by the organization in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft, going No. 16 overall. He’s spent his whole career with the Football Team.
In his 10 seasons, Kerrigan is a four-time Pro Bowl selection and was named to the All-Rookie Team by the PFWA after his 2011 campaign. He’s a big-time addition for the Eagles organization.
Kerrigan has registered 454 tackles, 25 pass break-ups, 26 forced fumbles, 3 interceptions and 3 defensive touchdowns in his NFL career.
At Purdue, Kerrigan was named the B1G Defensive Lineman and Defensive Player of the Year following the 2010 season, and was named a first-team All-B1G defensive end and was a unanimous All-American.
