That’s always a good thing for Washington Redskins linebacker Ryan Kerrigan.

The Washington Redskins didn’t need to see Ryan Kerrigan one more year before making a decision on his future, signing the linebacker to a five-year extension Wednesday.

Allen is a rugged blue-collar defender with a power-based game. He should thrive as a 5-technique in the Redskins’ scheme and create more big-play opportunities for Ryan Kerrigan off the edge. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo reported Friday that Murphy suffered a torn ACL in Thursday’s preseason game in Baltimore.

People should not be diving off the Wentz wagon. The rookie sensation had the Eagles within 14 yards of a game-winning touchdown with 12 seconds to go before Redskins defensive end Ryan Kerrigan blew by third-string offensive tackle Matt Tobin for the sack-fumble. Should Wentz have anticipated the rush? Perhaps. It did not come from his blind side. But at that point, the team needs a touchdown, has no timeouts left and receivers aren’t breaking open.

When it comes to Kerrigan’s pass-rush skills, both he and the Washington Redskins feel he’s not a finished product. That’s what makes them excited for the future. Kerrigan already set a career-high this season with 9.5 sacks to go with three forced fumbles.

The Redskins’ defensive line has been a sore spot for the team for years. Washington hasn’t addressed the position with a top pick since plucking Ryan Kerrigan in the first round in 2011. That’s always a good thing for Washington Redskins linebacker Ryan Kerrigan. He’s learned how to take care of his body, tries to eat the right foods and get the right amount of sleep.

When it comes to contracts, how a guy gets paid is not usually commensurate with his standing at that position. All about timing folks. Kerrigan gives the Redskins what they want: a very good linebacker who takes the approach they love.

Ryan Kerrigan also sat out all the preseason games to rest his knee. He underwent arthroscopic surgery to remove bone spurs last spring, forcing him out of workouts and mini-camps for most of the offseason.

The Redskins need Kerrigan to stay healthy because they’re thin with pass-rushing outside linebackers. Second-year Preston Smith has looked good this summer, but Trent Murphy was moved back there after transitioning to end. Murphy’s strength hasn’t been as a pass-rusher, though he gives them depth.

With the Redskins in desperate need of a complementary shop wrecker to team with Ryan Kerrigan along the defensive front, the team wisely snapped up the Alabama star with 28.5 career sacks on his college résumé. As a natural 5-technique with a game built on brute strength and china nike nfl jerseys and power, Allen might be the three-down monster Washington needs to overtake the Cowboys in the NFC East. If he can overcome the injury concerns that clouded his draft status, Allen will make the teams that bypassed him regret their decisions down the road.

The Redskins might’ve snagged the best defender in the draft when they plucked Allen with the No. 17 overall pick. The blue-collar defender is a rock-solid run defender with a solid set of pass-rush skills that could make him a nightmare to block at the point of attack. With Ryan Kerrigan poised to attract a lot of attention on the edge, Allen could become the Redskins’ most disruptive defender from his 5-technique position.

Kerrigan, entering the last year of his contract, has been talking to the Redskins about an extension, and general manager Scot McCloughan made it clear earlier this month that he wants to keep Kerrigan around.

But that’s why the Redskins remain alive. Kerrigan had entered the game with 10 sacks, but he had not provided the big plays this defense needed. Josh Norman is an excellent cornerback who has helped, but he can’t make big plays if a team doesn’t challenge him. Kerrigan or someone else had to do the job.

Kerrigan is entering his seventh NFL season and is coming off his second Pro Bowl appearance. He knows how to take care of his body. That maintenance, plus good fortune, could explain why he’s never missed an NFL game.
