The new Redskins coaching staff is expected to allow Brian Orakpo and Ryan Kerrigan to rush the quarterback more often this season.
Jim Haslett remains the Redskins' defensive coordinator, but new head coach Jay Gruden is preaching aggression defensively. Orakpo racked up 10 sacks last year despite rushing the passer just 363 times, 16th-most in the league among 3-4 outside linebackers. This year, he should get at least 100 more chances to attack the quarterback. CSN Washington's Tarik El-Bashir is projecting 14-16 sacks. Apr 14 - 10:55 AM
