Brian Orakpo believes that he can win the Defensive Player of the Year award next season having recovered from injury.

Washington Redskins offensive linebacker Brian Orakpo has assured that he is "300%" ready for the new season having recovered from injury.

Orakpo said that he is planning to make up for lost time and put in a bid for the NFL's Defensive Player of the Year.

"I'm 100, 200, 300% - whatever that number may be," Orakpo told the Skins' 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.

"I'm going to rip it up this year. I have high expectations. I want to win, be in contention for Defensive Player of the Year, get Comeback Player of the Year."

Orakpo only played two matches last season because of his injury.
