The Washington Redskins made their playoff run last season without Brian Orakpo, their biggest defensive chip. A team with high aspirations this season, the Redskins are glad the outside linebacker said he's more than recovered from surgery on a torn pectoral muscle.
"I'm 100, 200, 300 (percent) -- whatever that number may be," Orakpo said Thursday, per the Redskins' official website. "In OTAs or minicamp, I didn't miss a day, I didn't miss a practice. I was ready to go. In training camp, I'm going to be full go."
Heading into a contract season, Orakpo said he doesn't need motivation to perform at his previously high level.
"I'm going to rip it up this year," he said. "I have high expectations. I want to win, be in contention for Defensive Player of the Year, get Comeback Player of the Year."
