Pierre-Louis started 11 of his 13 games in 2020, recording 56 tackles (36 solo), two pass defenses, one sack and one forced fumble.
Pierre-Louis opened the year in a three-down role, piling up 20 tackles on 142 snaps over the first two weeks of the season. He kept his job in Washington's base defense for most of the year, but it was Cole Holcomb who got most of the nickel work alongside Jon Bostic in the second half of the season. Among the three, only Pierre-Louis is scheduled for free agency during the upcoming offseason. Regardless of where he signs, the 29-year-old journeyman linebacker isn't likely to relive his brief moment of IDP relevance.

Pierre-Louis (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.
The 29-year-old was deemed questionable coming into the weekend after submitting a trio of limited practice sessions between Wednesday and Friday. Despite that level of involvement constituting an improvement after Pierre-Louis was unable to participate in any fashion the week prior, the outside linebacker will be sidelined for a second consecutive game. Khaleke Hudson stands as the next man up at weakside linebacker after he got the starting nod and proceeded to collect eight tackles over 28 defensive snaps last week against the Seahawks.
Pierre-Louis (ankle) was a limited practice participant Friday and is tagged as questionable for Sunday's contest versus Carolina, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
The linebacker picked up the ankle injury during Week 14's matchup against San Francisco and missed last week's game against Seattle. After logging three limited practice sessions this week, he appears to have a fair shot of returning Sunday. If he's able to suit up, Pierre-Louis should return to his regular starting role at weakside linebacker.
Pierre-Louis (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Seahawks, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
Pierre-Louis was unable to take the practice field this week, and he'll be unable to play versus the Seahawks, who drafted him in the fourth round in 2014. Cole Holcomb (concussion) is also out, meaning the Football Team will be without two starting linebackers. Thomas Davis, Khaleke Hudson and Jared Norris are all candidates to fill in.
Pierre-Louis (ankle) was a nonparticipant during Wednesday's practice, Kyle Stackpole of Washington's official site reports.
Pierre-Louis was forced to leave Sunday's game against the 49ers in the fourth quarter due to the ankle injury and the injury appears to more serious than originally anticipated.

Pierre-Louis (shoulder) was a full participant during Thursday's practice, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.
Pierre-Louis was limited during Wednesday's practice, but the fact that he was upgraded so quickly is evidence that the team may have been managing his practice reps during the week. Now appearing fully healthy, the veteran will assume his usual starting role at weakside linebacker for Week 7 against the Cowboys.
Pierre-Louis (shoulder) was limited in practice Wednesday, John Keim of ESPN NFL Nation reports.
This shoulder injury is a new development for Pierre-Louis, but it's encouraging that he was at least able to practice on a limited basis to start the week. He'll hope to upgrade to full practice participation over the two remaining sessions before Sunday's game against Dallas.
Pierre-Louis (illness) is officially active for Sunday's game against Baltimore.
Pierre-Louis popped up on the injury report with a non-COVID-19 related illness Friday but appears to have put the ailment behind him. Now that he's officially healthy, the Boston College product will assume his usual role as the team's starting strongside linebacker for Week 4.
Pierre-Louis (illness) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Kyle Stackpole of the Washington Football Team's official site reports.
Pierre-Louis' name was a late addition to the injury report Friday, putting his status for Sunday's game in question. The linebacker has 24 tackles through three games, with 16 of those coming in Week 2 against the Cardinals.
Pierre-Louis had 15 tackles (10 solo) and a forced fumble in Sunday's 30-15 loss to Arizona.
A backup and special teams player throughout most of his career, Pierre-Louis now finds himself in a three-down role, playing 98 percent of Washington's defensive snaps through the first two weeks of the season. He only had four tackles (three) in the season opener, but the playing time led to a huge stat line Week 2. It appears the 28-year-old will have some IDP value, though fellow three-down linebacker Jon Bostic has also been productive through two weeks, logging 14 tackles (10 solo) and a pair of sacks.
Pierre-Louis and the Redskins agreed to terms on a one-year contract worth up to $3.45 million Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Pierre-Louis was an underrated asset for the Bears last season on both defense and special teams. In 14 games, the 28-year-old racked up 37 tackles (27 solo) and an interception across 491 total snaps. It's unclear whether Pierre-Louis will find a more prominent role on defense for Washington or remain a depth player.
Pierre-Louis intercepted a pass and collected six tackles in the Bears' 21-19 victory over the Vikings in Week 17, and he finished the season with 37 tackles and an interception.
Pierre-Louis just completed his sixth year of NFL service, and the Bears were his fourth team over the past four seasons. He'll go into the offseason as an unrestricted free agent, and he'll likely continue to function as a rotational player but he won't likely be one to count on in fantasy leagues.
Pierre-Louis recorded six stops in the Bears' 31-24 win over the Cowboys on Thursday.
After Roquan Smith left the game with a pectoral injury, Pierre-Louis filled in with a solid effort in his first extended action of the season.

Pierre-Louis agreed Wednesday with the Bears on a one-year contract, Larry Mayer of the team's official site reports.
Pierre-Louis has appeared in 57 games for three different teams in his career (Seahawks, Chiefs and Jets), racking up 91 tackles (62 solo) and one sack. The 27-year-old linebacker saw 182 of his 217 total snaps on special teams last season and presumably won't be tasked with filling a major role on defense for the Bears.
The Jets declined Pierre-Louis' (shoulder) $2.875 million option for 2019, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.
Pierre-Louis landed on injured reserve prior to the season finale as he was set to miss his seventh consecutive game. The 27-year-old had only seven total tackles in nine games with New York as he mostly served in a special teams role.
Pierre-Louis (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.
The move means nothing in regards to Pierre-Louis' injury -- he was already ruled out for Week 17 -- as the Jets simply decided to create some additional roster space for the season finale. The 27-year-old had seven combined tackles and a sack while playing in only nine games this season.
