Redskins By The (Jersey) Numbers: #90 Kenard Lang

New, comments

Today we look back on Kenard Lang’s time in Washington

Kenard Lang #90

Kenard Lang is clearly the best player to ever wear #90 (though I did think to go for a silly post featuring Terry Crews) for the Redskins and I’m not just saying that because he’s a former Miami Hurricane. Lang joined the Redskins as their 1st round selection in 1997 after a great career at Miami where he racked up 23+ sacks, nearly 200 tackles, and 4 forced fumbles. He was also a dual athlete as a baseball player. The Redskins thought he could be a difference maker at the DE position. Lang never quite fulfilled his 1st round status but he did have a couple good seasons in Washington. Lang was with the Redskins from 1997 to 2000 with his best seasons coming in 1998 and 1998. He racked up 46 tackles, 7 sacks, and 2FF in ‘98 and 34 tackles, 6 sacks, and 3FF’s in ‘99.

Lang never took the next step forward with the Redskins and arguably his career. He was replaced in the rotation in the 2000 season by Hall of Famer Bruce Smith after he (Smith) left Buffalo the year prior. Lang went to Cleveland after his time with the Skins and also had a couple of good years there until Romeo Crennel decided it be a good idea to convert him to outside linebacker. Lang finished his career in Denver and ended his NFL career with a stat line of 355 tackles, 50 sacks, 13FF, 13 passes defended, 3 INTs over 10 seasons.
