--While Kerrigan appeared on 99 less defensive snaps this season, the Purdue product recorded 11 sacks and was named to the 2017 Pro Bowl.
--On Feb. 3, 2016, the Redskins made a quiet Reserve/Future contract signing with Hood, a former first-round pick of the Steelers. After appearing in just two games with the Chicago Bears during the 2015 season, Hood started 14 games for the Redskins and collected 33 tackles (one sack) along with three passes defensed and a fumbled forced.
--Murphy, meanwhile, was fitted for a move to defensive end during the offseason but was pushed back into an outside linebacker role during training camp. Despite the movement (and the need to add weight and then work it back off), Murphy actually appeared on more defensive snaps this season (675 to 672) and recorded a career-high nine sacks.
--Despite only starting 10 games, Ihenacho led all safeties in defensive snaps with 636.
--Of the rookies, Fuller appeared on the most snaps with 478 while Cravens – who appeared in 11 games – totaled 297. Cravens, of course, was used as a situational player but is expected to move to safety during his second season in Washington.
