The Minnesota Vikings are in the market to add a veteran edge rusher to the defense this offseason.
KSTP’s Darren Wolfson reported that the Vikings are interested in longtime Washington edge rusher and four-time Pro Bowler Ryan Kerrigan with Washington yet to re-sign him following 10 seasons with the franchise.
Kerrigan, the former No. 16 overall pick in 2011, is Washington’s all-time leader in sacks. He ranks fifth among active NFL players with 95.5 career sacks — trailing only Von Miller (106.0), J.J. Watt (101.0), Justin Houston (97.5) and Chandler Jones (97.0). He’s been considered one of the most underappreciated edge rushers in the NFL after spending a decade of futility in a struggling Washington franchise that hasn’t won a playoff game in 15 years.
