New Eagles defensive end Ryan Kerrigan came to town yesterday for the first time since agreeing to terms on a one-year deal last week.
Kerrigan left Washington as the franchise’s all-time leader with 95 1/2 sacks.
“I had a really great visit here. It’s hard to put a finger on it, but the energy in the building was just so positive, so good from Coach (Nick) Sirianni to Coach (Jonathan) Gannon to Coach (Tracy) Rocker, you felt a good, positive sense of energy here. Coach Gannon knows ball. He knows his personnel and I feel like he’s gonna put us in the position that’s conducive to us being successful,” Kerrigan told the media on Zoom.
“You got to build a culture of caring for each other and I feel like that’s what Coach Sirianni is really trying to do here is allowing us to connect and really build some great relationships,” Kerrigan said. “The best teams I’ve been on that I was on in Washington, we all really connected in the building and out of the building. I know that’s what Coach Sirianni is trying to build here because it definitely translates to performance on the field.”
