Kerrakpo Digs Anniversary Uniforms

Posted by Andrew Walker on May 14, 2012 – 10:24 am

Redskins outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan just couldn’t resist quoting Deion “Primetime” Sanders when asked about the team’s 80th Anniversary Uniforms.

“I like them a lot,” Kerrigan told CSNWashington.com. “Like Deion Sanders said, ‘Look good, feel good. Feel good, play good.’ So hopefully that amounts to us this year.”

Kerrigan wasn’t the only one digging the team’s new threads.

His outside linebacker colleague, Brian Orakpo, said he enjoyed everything about the uniforms, including the helmets, which were designed to look like the leather helmets used in the 1930s.

“I’m a big fan of it,” Orakpo said. “I mean, I think it’s different and it looks good. Hopefully we play good in them.”

The Redskins’ 80th Anniversary Uniforms will be worn at two games to be determined in the 2012 season. Several fans have already expressed their interest in picking one up as soon as possible.

Orakpo and Kerrigan also talked with CSNWashington.com about the new Indoor Practice Facility, rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III and their thoughts on the Pittsburgh Steelers throwback uniforms in this video clip:

    Note to Kerrigan: when talking to Redskins fans, do not quote SlimeTime Sanders. Ever.
