Number Two: Ryan Kerrigan
Ryan Kerrigan is a defensive end for the Washington Football Team, and he has been for a decade. His tenure could be coming to an end sooner rather than later. The Saints have a desperate need for defensive help, and Kerrigan could be the guy they land in the Big Easy.
Several insiders have linked Kerrigan to the Saints which should excite New Orleans fans all around.
Kerrigan is literally a model of consistency as he’s only missed four games due to injury throughout his ten-year career, he averages nearly ten sacks every season, and he’s an overall great player who is team-oriented.
The Saints would be a perfect landing spot for Kerrigan who could finally compete for a Super Bowl.
We just saw the Vikings trade Yannick Ngakoue to the Baltimore Ravens for a 2021 third-round draft pick and a 2022 conditional fifth-round draft pick. The Washington Football Team won’t be able to ask for as much as the Vikings got for Ngakoue, but the Saints would still likely give them a solid offer.
Peter King described Kerrigan as “the best value at the NFL trade deadline” primarily because of what he brings to whatever team he ends up being dealt to and the fact that he will only cost your team a little over six million dollars for the final ten games of the season.
