Washington Redskins linebacker Brian Orakpo is slated to become a free agent at the end of the season.
But with minicamp not even having concluded yet, the two-time Pro Bowl selection is already stating that he has a strong desire to remain in Washington.
“I would love to be a Redskin for life,” Orakpo said, per David Elfin of 106.7 The FAN. “As long as both sides take care of our business, that shouldn’t be a problem. The coaches know what I mean to this organization. We’re going to let things take care of [themselves]. I’m all about football. I’ll let my agents handle that.”
The linebacker has 30 sacks over 49 career games and will easily reclaim his starting spot, provided there are no setbacks.
Orakpo is coming off an injury-riddled 2012 season that was cut short in Week 2 by a torn pectoral ligament.
