Brian Orakpo: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Orakpo (chest) is expected to be 100 percent healthy for the start of training camp, Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Orakpo tore his pectoral muscle in October, and the Titans, who signed him to a four-year deal in March, are bringing him along slowly. Coach Ken Whisenhunt said the team is holding Orakpo back with the expectation that he'll be ready to go at full speed for the start of camp.
Orakpo agreed to terms Friday with the Titans on a four-year, $32 million contract, the Washington Times reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Orakpo is coming off a substandard 2014 season with Washington (24 tackles and 0.5 sacks in seven games) that came to an end in October when he suffered a torn right pectoral muscle. The same injury cost Orakpo most of the 2012 campaign, but he's otherwise consistently pressured opposing quarterbacks when healthy during his career, averaging nearly 10 sacks in the four seasons he's played at least 15 games. With the Titans, Orakpo will slot in at outside linebacker in defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau's 3-4 defensive scheme, where he'll be tasked with providing a bookend on the pass rush with Derrick Morgan, who was also re-signed by the Titans on Friday.
Orakpo (pectoral) was placed on the season-ending IR on Tuesday, Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Orakpo recently learned that he has once again suffered a torn pectoral muscle, so it's no surprise to see him officially ruled out for the remainder of the regular season. Trent Murphy will likely resume additional snaps at outside linebacker in his stead, while linebacker Everette Brown was re-signed by the team Tuesday to add depth.
Orakpo is reportedly done for the season due to a torn right pectoral muscle, cbslocal.com reports.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Orakpo reached double digit sacks in 2013 for the first time since his rookie season. He recorded ten sacks and 60 tackles. He received the franchise tag instead of a long term deal during the offseason. When healthy he averages just under ten sacks a season. The team drafted Trent Murphy in the second round in 2014 which might signal this is Orakpo's last season as a Redskin.

2013

Orakpo is returning from shoulder surgery that cost him all of 2012. It was the same injury that ended his 2011 season in Week 17. He is expected to be healthy to start the year. If he can return to form expect around 50 tackles, 10 sacks, and a few forced fumbles.

2012

Orakpo had a solid yet unspectacular 2011. He recorded 9 sacks for the third year in a row, a career high 60 tackles, and three forced fumbles. He was often double teamed and struggled at times especially to make an impact (half his sacks came in two games). He suffered a torn pectoral in the final game of 2011 but is 100 percent going into training camp. Expect Orakpo to have more breathing room with the continued maturation of Ryan Kerrigan. Also the team has another year under it's belt in the 3-4 defense.

2010

Orakpo posted an impressive 11 sacks and 50 tackles as a rookie, splitting time between defensive end and outside linebacker. Orkapo was typically used at DE on passing downs, but this season might play OLB full time. If that’s the case, his IDP ranking will suffer greatly because he won’t generate enough tackles to hang with the top linebackers. His sacks likely will take a hit too, but as the OLB in Washington’s new 3-4 defense, he could still be used as an edge rusher (if Andre Carter doesn’t man that spot). Orakpo has significant fantasy upside if he’s deployed as a defensive end. Just double-check his eligibility in your league before drafting.

2009

First round draft pick in 2009. He is expected to play outside linebacker part time and defensive end on passing downs. He has the size, strength and speed to play both positions. He has a lot to learn and Defensive Coach Greg Blache does not like to start rookies. Expect Orakpo to be eased into his role.
