The defensive line is full of talent and excellent depth. The Washington Football Team could be looking at a top-three defense in 2021 and the defensive line will lead the way. The only concern this season will be the possibility of multiple injuries, but this unit is young and should remain healthy.
The organization decided to move on from long-time linebacker/defensive end Ryan Kerrigan and while it was difficult for fans to say au revoir for now, he will return to a ring of honor ceremony in the not-too-distant future.
Kerrigan was very effective in the first few games the last couple of seasons, but his body felt the toll of playing through all of the last decade. The team made the right choice and they have more talented depth this season after adding players in the draft.
The Washington Football Team is very unlikely to add any free agents on the line, but that comes with a footnote. If any untimely injuries occur during the various camps or in the preseason, the front office could search for any lineman through free agency, a trade, or via waivers/releases.
The next step in this series takes us to the other side of the ball as we begin to analyze the offensive units. Our next group to examine will be the offensive linemen. There have been some interesting developments with this particular unit at Washington Football Team Park in recent days and Riggo’s Rag will cover it in detail for you.
