The 32-year-old Kerrigan signed a one-year contract with the Eagles. Kerrigan played all of his 10 seasons in Washington, is a four-time Pro Bowl player and is the franchise's all-time sacks leader with 95 1/2.

"I know I probably wasn't your favorite player over the past decade, but Philadelphia Eagles fans I'm fired up to be playing for you guys now! LFG!!! #flyeaglesfly," Kerrigan posted on Instagram Monday.

On Sunday night he shared a special message to his fans in D.C. "I'll never be able to sum up what these past 10 years have meant to me in an Instagram post, but what I can say is that they have been some of the best of my life. I hope you had as much fun watching me as I did playing for you. Thank you, Washington, for everything. –HBK"

His old team also made their feelings known in a tweet that read, "A franchise leader on and off the field. Thank you Ryan Kerrigan."
