Ryan Kerrigan marries in California


Ryan Kerrigan marries in California

Washington Redskins linebacker Ryan Kerrigan married his fiancé Saturday in California, and the couple looks beyond happy on the 'gram.

Kerrigan and his now wife, Jessica Mazura married in Huntington Beach, Calif. — she's from nearby Newport Beach.

"After a lot of individual growing into their young adult lives and knowing 'of' each other for quite some time, their paths officially crossed when the stars were aligned and the timing was perfect for both of them. As in many romance movies, a 'hello'was all it took," their official wedding website says.

Their two dogs, Franklin and George, were part of the wedding. The two English Bulldogs looked amazing in their wedding suits.

Kerrigan, who is from Indiana and played at Purdue University, was selected by the Redskins in the first round with the sixteenth overall pick in the 2011 draft, and has been with the team ever since.

Three Redskins were named to the Pro Bowl back in December, but Kerrigan will be the Redskins’ sole representative who played.

Last season, he finished with double digit sacks — for the second year in a row — with 13. He has been elected to the Pro Bowl three times in his career, and has not missed a regular season game in his seven seasons.

Redskins make contract offer to pass rusher Pernell McPhee, per report


Redskins make contract offer to pass rusher Pernell McPhee, per report

Free agent pass rusher Pernell McPhee visited the Redskins on Monday, and by Tuesday night a report emerged that Washington offered the veteran outside linebacker a contract.

Last week, Trent Murphy signed with the Buffalo Bills and things remain uncertain between the Redskins and Junior Galette. That means the organization has a need for an edge rushing linebacker, and that's exactly the role McPhee can play. 

A 29-year-old that played the last three seasons with the Bears, McPhee posted 14 sacks while in Chicago. Prior to his time with the Bears, McPhee was a solid contributor on some good Ravens teams. 


His best season in Baltimore came in 2014 when he posted 7.5 sacks. That's also the last season McPhee played a full 16 game schedule. He's missed 12 games over the last three years in Chicago. 

McPhee could provide the Redskins with solid veteran depth at outside linebacker, and he's also considered a plus defender against the run. With Ryan Kerrigan and Preston Smith cemented as the starting outside linebackers, if signed, McPhee would pair up with Ryan Anderson on Washington's second unit. At 6-foot-2 and 275 lbs., McPhee carries more weight on his frame than either Kerrigan or Smith. 

Pro Football Focus gave McPhee a strong grade for the 2017 season. He notched a +11.5 and ranked 13th out of 46 outside linebackers graded. For comparison, Broncos star Von Miller ranked 1st at +57, Kerrigan ranked 8th at +22.9 and Galette ranked 10th at +16.2.

It's unclear what a move for McPhee would mean between the Redskins and Galette, but it's hard to imagine it helps.

Free agent Johnathan Hankins also visited Washington on Monday, and while he plays an interior defensive line position different from McPhee, it's also unclear what this offer would do to any negotiations between the Redskins and Hankins.

Ryan Grant reportedly signing with Colts after failed physical with Ravens

Ryan Grant reportedly signing with Colts after failed physical with Ravens

It looks like Ryant Grant has found his new home, again.

After a failed physical with the Ravens, James Jones of NFL Network reports Grant plans to sign with the Colts.


Grant originally agreed to a four-year, $29 million deal with the Ravens, before the team pulled the offer citing an ankle injury that dated to the Redskins' final regular-season game, according to reports.

Baltimore eventually signed Michael Crabtree to a three-year deal, while Grant had visits with the Colts and Raiders.

His agent, Rocky Arceneaux, says Grant has been working out, running routes, and his ankle had been cleared by Dr. Robert Anderson in a second opinion.

In 2017 with the Redskins, he appeared in all 16 games, with 45 receptions for 573 yards and four touchdowns.
