The Showstopper isn't leaving Washington any time soon, as the Redskins announce on Wednesday afternoon on the eve of his fifth training camp that Ryan Kerrigan has agreed to a contract extension.

From a young but talented defensive end turned linebacker to a player many consider to be the backbone of the Redskins' defense, Kerrigan has been everything the Redskins and the fans could have dreamed for when he was selected in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft.

Through his first four seasons, the Purdue product has accumulated 247 tackles with 38 sacks, 16 passes defensed and 15 fumbles forced.

We could go on and on about Kerrigan's outstanding body of work to date, but here's some fan reaction to the news that No. 91 will be with the Redskins for a few more years:
