Jaguars waived LB Kevin Bentley.

Signed just two weeks ago, the 10-year veteran notched one tackle in one game. Bentley managed 55 tackles in 13 games for the Texans a season ago, but it's clear he's no longer viewed as anything more than an end-of-roster player. He should clear waivers.

Jaguars signed LB Kevin Bentley.

The 10-year veteran will provide depth with Clint Session out for the season. Bentley has been out of the league all season despite recording 52 tackles in 13 appearances and eight starts with the Texans last year.

Chargers signed LB Kevin Bentley, formerly of the Texans.

The 31-year-old Bentley spent the 2010 season with Houston, recording 52 tackles in 13 appearances with eight starts. He'd drawn zero interest on the open market to this point, and will be strictly a special teamer in San Diego.

Texans LB Kevin Bentley will now start on the strong side with Brian Cushing moving to middle linebacker.

Bentley hasn't played since Week 3 after undergoing minor knee surgery. He's done very little in his 8+ years in the league, typically being used more so on special teams. Xavier Adibi will be Bentley's backup.

Texans LB Kevin Bentley is out indefinitely after undergoing knee surgery on Wednesday morning.

The team provided no timetable for return. Bentley, 30, has played enough on defense to contribute just three tackles, but is a core special teamer.

Texans signed LB Kevin Bentley to a three-year, $4 million contract.

Houston's addition of Ray Rhodes to the staff undoubtedly helped reel him in. The special teams standout becomes the No. 1 candidate to replace Danny Clark on the strong side. Clark could also return for cheap to compete.

Free agent LB Kevin Bentley will meet with the Texans on Sunday.

Bentley wants a shot to start. The Texans could put him on the strong side, where incumbents Danny Clark and Charlie Anderson are both unsigned.

Free agent LB Kevin Bentley will not return to Seattle in 2008.

Bentley wants to start, which he never could do behind Lofa Tatupu, Julian Peterson, and LeRoy Hill. He was Seattle's fourth LB the past two years.

Seahawks signed LB Kevin Bentley to a two-year, $1.55 million contract.

The deal which was agreed upon in March includes a $325,000 signing bonus. Bentley is expected to be a reserve next season.
Wed, Apr 5, 2006 10:11:00 AM

Seahawks agreed to terms with LB Kevin Bentley on a two-year contract.

With the impending addition of free agent Julian Peterson, Bentley will likely return to a backup role after starting three of the last four games for the 'Hawks in 2005.
Wed, Mar 22, 2006 11:24:00 AM

Seahawks signed LB Kevin Bentley, formerly of the Browns, to one-year, $650,000 deal that includes a $150,000 signing bonus.

He started during most of 2003 in Cleveland without distinction. The Seahawks need linebacker depth badly, but Bentley still may be a longshot to start.

Former Browns linebacker Kevin Bentley is visiting the Seahawks this week.

The Seahawks will look closely at every decent linebacker with a pulse in the next few weeks.
