Ryan Kerrigan spent 11 seasons tormenting Eagles fans. He hit 13.5 sacks for the first 10 of them, 15 tackles for the loss, 6 coercive fumbles, and a six in 19 games. against Vulture. For his 11th season he tormented Eagles fans by doing absolutely nothing during the 2021 season For Vulture. In 16 matches he made 3 tackles, one of which was for defeat. that was it. The only way to notice that Kerrigan was in the game for the Eagles was because he was the only white man on the defensive line. And then in the playoffs against Tampa Bay he had 1.5 sacks, 2 tackles for damages, and 2 QB hits. Where was that man all year?
Every team has its share of players who ended their careers with randomly random teams. Johnny Unitas was a charger. played for jerry rice seahawks, Donovan McNab ends his career with the Vikings, with John Runyon chargersWith LeSean McCoy Books… you get the idea.
Today, in honor of (dis) Ryan Kerrigan is retiring After a completely forgettable end to an otherwise outstanding career, I present the Ryan Kerrigan All Stars. A player who was notable for having an illustrious career playing for other teams but ended his career doing little more than taking a paycheck with the Eagles.
