Washington Redskins linebacker Ryan Kerrigan doesn’t want to be just ‘consistent.’
Sure, he’s started every game for the Redskins since being drafted in the first-round of the 2011 NFL Draft, and he’s allowed his long-flowing locks to glean beach winds in Hawaii at the Pro Bowl, but he’s ready to take the next step in performance.
In this interview with the The Star Press in his hometown of Muncie, Ind., Kerrigan explains his motivation for the upcoming season, how the team has meshed under a mix of new and returning coaches and being back home.
ABOUT THE REDSKINS: Headquartered at Redskins Park in Ashburn, Virginia, and owned by Daniel Snyder, the historic Washington Redskins Football Club has won five World Championship titles including the 1937 and 1942 National Football League Championship games, as well as Super Bowls XVII, XXII and XXVI. Founded in 1932 as the Boston Braves in Massachusetts, the team changed its name to the Redskins in 1933 and relocated to Washington, D.C., in 1937. Since then, the team has become one of the most recognizable professional sports franchises in history, featuring multiple Hall of Fame coaches, 19 members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame (with seven others who also were Redskins) and becoming the first team in the NFL with an official marching band and fight song, "Hail to the Redskins." The Redskins have been owned by Dan Snydersince 1999, and beginning in 1997, began playing their home games at FedExField in Landover, Md.
