Ryan Kerrigan spent 11 seasons torturing Eagles fans. For the first 10 of them, he has 13.5 sacks, 15 losing tackles, 6 forced tackles, and has a pick of six in 19 games. against the Eagles. In his eleventh season, he tormented Eagles fans by doing absolutely nothing during the 2021 season for the Eagles. In 16 matches he fought 3 interventions, one of them lost. This was him. The only way to notice Kerrigan was in the Eagles game is because he was the only white guy on the defensive line. Then in the playoffs against Tampa Bay, he had 1.5 sacks, 2 tackles for a loss, and 2 QB hits. Where the hell has that guy been all year?
Each team has its share of players who ended their careers with random teams. Johnny Unitas was a shipper. Jerry Rice played the Seahawks. Donovan McNab finished his career with the Vikings, John Runyan with the Charger, and Lechine McCoy with the Boss family…you get the point.
Today, in (dis) honor Ryan Kerrigan’s retirement After a completely forgotten end to a stellar career, I’m introducing the Ryan Kerrigan All Stars. Players who are notable for their impressive career playing for other teams but they ended their career by doing more than just getting paid while with Al-Nusour.
