He’s got the biceps and the skill set, but the rest is up for debate.
Ryan Kerrigan once likened himself to Ben Wallace as an intimidator and a shot blocker on the basketball court, but he admitted his game has regressed.
Kerrigan appeared on “Redskins Nation” with Larry Michael Wednesday to talk about his time at the 2011 NFL Scouting Combine and promote a “Battle of the Beltway” charity basketball game pitting Kerrigan’s squad against a team captained by Baltimore Ravens receiver Torrey Smith.
“I was pretty subpar to start with,” said Kerrigan, who was a big man for Muncie Central High School. “Now I have a knee – a bad knee – so it’s probably even worse, but it’ll be a good time. I’m on the recruiting trail right now trying to round up some Redskins to play.”
Kerrigan had a minor arthroscopic knee procedure in January, but he’s been back working out at Redskins Park. He’ll be ready to take on the Ravens with a little help from his friends on Saturday, March 29, at the Comcast Center.
Which Redskins would be on the linebacker’s dream team?
“I hear Trent Williams is really good,” Kerrigan said. “I’ve seen Josh Morgan, and he’s outstanding. He played on Kevin Durant’s AAU team growing up. D-Hall is good. Niles (Paul) is pretty good. Perry Riley is, from what I hear, pretty solid basketball player, too, so we’re going to have a pretty good squad I imagine.”
At least we know he can dunk.
