The Philadelphia Eagles are looking to have a short rebuild as they have made some smart moves both in the draft and in free agency signings.
One of their latest moves that could have a huge impact is signing Washington Football Team Ryan Kerrigan. Kerrigan was with the WFT for ten seasons. Undoubtedly the Eagles got a dog that will rotate in and get their fair share of sacks. Kerrigan joins a front that includes Fletcher Cox, Brandon Graham, Derek Barnett, And Josh Sweat. These names got 5+ sacks this last season. The Philadelphia Eagles were 3rd in total sacks last season.

Ryan Kerrigan got a one-year deal with Philadelphia worth 3.5 million dollars. This gives the Eagles a great option at pass rush without paying top dollar for it. Kerrigan had 5.5 sacks in the last two seasons with WFT. Last season it should be noted, Kerrigan only started one game for the Football Team last season while playing in all 16 games. Back in 2019, Kerrigan started and played in the 12 games.
Bring out your dog masks as the Philadelphia Eagles will be underrated and disrespected as they are in the NFC East. This year’s Eagles will look to improve their secondary as this is the weakest part of the Eagles roster. They addressed it in the draft with 4th rounder Zech McPhearson. I feel Howie Roseman, the Eagles general manager is proving critics wrong with these moves and I find Ryan Kerrigan as that perfect bow on this off-season present for Eagles fans all over.

You can’t win games in the offseason but providing hope and optimism is what can be given instead. The next question to ask is when will the Eagles be retooled for a playoff run? Fortunately, I’ll give the Eagles two years until I expect playoff/Super Bowl aspirations realistically. This allows Roseman and his staff to get this roster in order. Until then, Fly Eagles Fly!!!
