Now is the perfect time to move on from Kerrigan. You have to have the ability to see when a player is starting to hit the downside of his career and now is that time for Kerrigan.
If Kerrigan was demanding to be a starter and to earn starter money, you'd be correct. But it sounds like this is not the case. We don't know that for sure, but if he wasn't in the team's future plans, he'd been cut.

The team could still trade him. But from what a lot of reporters are saying, it seems that both the team and Ryan are going to work something out.

I just disagree with keeping him around. The team is still rebuilding so I'm not keeping any older guys at all. It shouldn't matter if he wants to be a starter or not. I'm on the phone with the Ravens or any contender that's looking for a part time pass rusher and working out a deal.

I'm kinda in the same boat, he's getting old and about done. Let him go play for a team that is closer than us

Can you blame Snyder though? Kerrigan has been a model player for the Redskins. All the reason to send him somewhere where he has a chance to win a championship to cap of his career. I just don't think Snyder sees it that way. He probably wants "core" guys like Kerrigan to never play for anyone else and will hold on to him for personal reasons.

Pay half his salary and trade him to NE for a mid-round pick.

Win-Win trade

Re: Ryan Kerrigan - Keep Him or Let Him Go?

at a team friendly cap # - keep him. I still believe he has enough left in the tank to be a real contributor. Who wouldn't want to rotate a fresh kerrigan in behind a tired edge rusher?

I'd be all about that

Re: Ryan Kerrigan - Keep Him or Let Him Go?

We are in a real rebuilding mode. Tough decisions have to be made. The most elite team in the NFL, the Patriots, is very ruthless with most players once they get above 30 years old. I like everything about Ryan Kerrigan, but his production fell off this season. Weíve invested two first round draft picks on the Edge. How much will Ryan actually play as a backup?


If they can get him down to $5 mill/yr for a 2-3 year deal, as the Edge backup, then do it. But you canít pay big bucks to an older player on the downslope, who will be a backup, just because the fans or owner love him for what he did in years past. This will be one of the toughest personnel decisions Rivera makes this offseason.

Keep Kerrigan. Don't throw the baby out with the bath water under the guise of culture change. You need at least 4 DEs. Not gonna find 2 other guys better than him (Sweat and Young would be the top 2).

Re: Ryan Kerrigan - Keep Him or Let Him Go?

I'd question how much of his drop off is age related and how much down to Manusky and his piss poor D scheme. Take him into Camp while trying to negotiate a revised deal, if not already in place. If he performs well in camp, we have the luxury of offering him as trade bait if he won't climb down on the contract. And if he does, we have a quality backup for a couple of years while Young develops. If he stinks up camp, release him and move on, but i doubt that.

IMO we should wait until we actually have CY before even thinking about trading/renegotiating or cutting RK.

I agree completely. Manuskyís crappy defense meant that Kerrigan AND Sweat both fell back in coverage 50% of the time!
What a frigging waste of talent. If you say that they were rushing the QB all those times, instead of going backwards in coverage - they might have DOUBLED their sack totals. So Sweat goes from 7.5 to 15 and Kerrigan goes from 5.5 to 11. Maybe thatís a little overstated but it still brings both players back to where they should have been. Manusky was a terrible DC. Letís see how Ryan does this TC.

Re: Ryan Kerrigan - Keep Him or Let Him Go?

No such thing as too many pass rushers. Keep him and itís not even a legitimate question worth considering.

If Rivera were reading this thread heíd just laugh.

I think it is time to move on pass Kerrigan. Not because I don't like the guy. I think just it is time to move on.
