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

The Redskins have applied their franchise tag on Orakpo, the Washington Post reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The franchise tag price for a linebacker is a hefty $11.455 million, but the Redskins were of no mind to let Orakpo walk, after a season in which the three-time Pro Bowler led the team with 10 sacks.
If they are unable to come to terms on a long-term deal with Orakpo prior to Monday's 4:00 ET deadline, the Redskins are reportedly prepared to use their franchise tag on the linebacker, according to ESPN.com.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

After missing the final 14 games of the 2012 season with a torn pectoral muscle, Orakpo missed just one game in 2013 -- the Redskins' season finale -- while recording 60 tackles and a team-high 10 sacks. Previous reports suggested that the decision whether or not to tag him would be a close call, but this latest report suggests that bringing back the pass rusher is a priority for the franchise.
Orakpo recorded 60 tackles, 10 sacks, and one interception in 2013.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013

Subscribe now to see our 2013 outlook.

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.
