Ryan Kerrigan 'excited' for Father's Day

Ryan Kerrigan 'excited' for Father's Day

A dad’s job is never done. There are no days off from providing for the family, caring for the kids, and making sure mom is happy. While they deserve our ‘thanks’ every day, officially they get one: Fathers’ Day.

Redskins defensive end Ryan Kerrigan is new to fatherhood: His daughter Lincoln Georgie is now 15 months old. When asked what this day of recognition means to him a huge smile crosses his face as he shares a simple request.

“I’m very excited for it, I told my wife all I want to do for Father’s Day is go and play golf. I haven't played any golf this offseason. I told her let me play 18 and I’ll be good,” Kerrigan said.

There are no doubts Ryan will be able to spend his day as he pleases, as he and all dads should. After all, he’s earned it. Ryan proudly displays his daddy duties on social media, carrying Lincoln on walks with their three pups and making sure his daughter is in attendance at practice and his games at FedEx Field.

The ‘Show stopper’ says sharing those moments with his daughter is what makes life all the more special. “It’s definitely more meaningful nowadays, having a 15-month-old, she’s the light of our lives and makes our days so much better. So it’s an honor to be her father and it’s cool I get to celebrate Father’s Day because of her.”

On this day, the only thing to make it all the better for Kerrigan, is to hit par.

SEE IT: Redskins RB Derrius Guice squats 585 pounds with ease

If there was an NFL award for the most impressive offseason workout videos, the Washington Redskins would definitely be a favorite to take home the hardware.  

Jonathan Allen set the summer squat standards with this 500lb display, Ryan Kerrigan pushed a 5,500 Chevy Tahoe through an alley (then said it "wasn't that hard"), and now Guice with this.

Guice is seeking to play his first full year of football in a Redskins uniform after suffering two season-ending knee injuries in his first two seasons, which makes this video even more impressive. 

Back in February, he said he was frustrated with being labeled 'soft'.

Doesn't look soft to me.

Jonathan Allen the latest Redskin to participate in a ridiculous workout

Jonathan Allen the latest Redskin to participate in a ridiculous workout

Another day, another Redskins players casually putting up an insane amount of weight while working out.

The most recent comes from Jonathan Allen, as the defensive end posted a video of him squatting during a workout with fellow front seven members Tim Settle and Ryan Kerrigan. However, this isn't just your average squat attempt. 

Yes, your eyes are not deceiving you. That is indeed Allen squatting a bar that features six plates... on each side. Based on the amount and size of the plates being used, there is at least 500 pounds, and probably more, of weight resting on his shoulders. That amount is also known as the equivalent of having a grizzly bear on your back.

Some will say Allen "didn't bend down all the way." Sure, maybe he could have sank down a little lower, but he also has 500-plus pounds that he is trying to push up. That amount of weight pretty much makes any task humanly impossible, so Allen gets all the hype and credit.

If you're sitting on the couch right now watching thinking "maybe I shouldn't fulfill my snack cravings today," former Redskins safety Will Blackmon is here to assure you that it is all okay.

His workout is just the latest in what has become a strongman competition between the Redskins defensive front. Rookie Chase Young was recently seen benching a weight total that made people wonder if the picture was photoshopped. Daron Payne and Kerrigan, who is helping Allen here, posted videos of them pushing cars down the road at an impressive speed. Kerrigan even stated that it wasn't too much of a challenge.

The Redskins front seven has the talent -- and muscle -- to be a dominant unit in 2020 and beyond. If opposing offensive linemen and quarterbacks weren't already nervous to face off with them, these videos are surely getting them there.
