Ryan Kerrigan doesn't want to be "average" anymore


There’s no doubt that Ryan Kerrigan is one of the cornerstones of this Redskins franchise. For a team that has been racked by injuries over the last couple of seasons, Kerrigan has been one of the few examples of stability.

Since being drafted 16th overall in 2011, Kerrigan has started every single game of his career, playing 98 percent of snaps, according to Pro Football Focus.

The Redskins have already picked up Kerrigan’s 2015 contract option, ensuring that he’ll remain in Washington for at least the next two years, but Kerrigan is already looking for more.

“I’ve worked hard these past few years to be the best I can for the team and for the organization. I’m going to be a part of it for at least an additional year and hopefully after that, even longer,” Kerrigan told the Star Press.

In just three years, Kerrigan has already amassed 183 tackles, 24.5 sacks and one Pro Bowl appearance. Still, he believes he is capable of more.

“I’m tired of being consistent. I want to be consistently really, really good,” he said. “I don’t want to be just consistently average anymore. I want to be consistently good.”

If Kerrigan can take that next step and elevate his game to the next level, than he should be prepping himself for a big contract year in 2015.
