It was expected the Redskins would pick up Kerrigan’s option — CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reported as much on Thursday amid other options being picked up.

Kerrigan, the 16th overall pick, will make $7.038 million (guaranteed for injury only) in 2015 as a result of the Redskins picking up his option.

Washington originally held the 10th-overall pick in that draft but traded with the Jaguars, who moved up to select Blaine Gabbert. (Whoops.) It worked out brilliantly for the Redskins, who will save more than $2 million in 2015 on Kerrigan as a result of him going 16th overall instead of 10th because of how those numbers are calculated.
