Veteran pass rusher Ryan Kerrigan said goodbye to the Washington Football Team and announced he has signed with the Philadelphia Eagles in separate Instagram posts Monday.

"I'll never be able to sum up what these past 10 years have meant to me in an Instagram post, but what I can say is that they have been some of the best of my life," Kerrigan wrote in his first post, saying goodbye to Washington. "I hope you had as much fun watching me as I did playing for you. Thank you, Washington, for everything."

"I know I probably wasn't your favourite player of the past decade, but Philadelphia Eagles fans I'm fired up to be playing for you guys now," Kerrigan wrote in his second post.

Kerrigan spent the past 10 seasons with Washington after the team selected him 16th overall in the 2011 NFL Draft.

The 32-year-old is Washington's all-time sacks leader with 95.5. He also recorded 454 tackles, three interceptions, and three defensive touchdowns in his 156 games with the club.

Kerrigan did not specify his next move in the post. The Purdue product played in all 16 games with one start last year, recording 17 tackles and 5.5 sacks.
