Redskins re-signed LB Bryan Kehl.

A reserve linebacker and special teamer, Kehl was claimed off waivers in November. He could see some time on defense in 2013, but his primary responsibility will remain kick coverage.

Redskins claimed LB Bryan Kehl off waivers from the Chiefs.

LB Mario Addison has been waived in a corresponding move. This is a depth move with Keenan Robinson now on injured reserve. Kehl, who was waived by the Redskins earlier this year in camp, figures to contribute mainly on special teams.

Chiefs waived LB Bryan Kehl.

The fifth-year pro was signed in early October, but ended up appearing in only three games as a special teamer. Before being waived by the Redskins in camp, Kehl had appeared in at least 14 games four straight seasons.

Chiefs signed LB Bryan Kehl.

The former Giants fourth-rounder worked out for the team a month ago. Kehl will back up Derrick Johnson and Jovan Belcher while pitching in on special teams.

The Redskins will release ILB Bryan Kehl if they cannot trade him Friday.

It's a surprise as Kehl had a standout preseason and was expected to stick as the eighth or ninth linebacker. CBS' Jason La Canfora is already reporting that "several" teams are interested in him. He suggests the Saints as a possible trading partner.

Redskins signed LB Bryan Kehl, formerly of the Rams.

Kehl will provide depth at inside linebacker, but should primarily play special teams after struggling to get on the field for the Rams' abysmal linebacker corps last season. A fourth-round pick in 2008, Kehl has made just five career starts, notching 110 tackles, one sack and one interception in 59 games.

Free agent LB Bryan Kehl is visiting the Redskins on Monday, and NFL.com's Jason La Canfora reports there's a "strong chance a deal gets done."

Kehl recently visited the Dolphins, and has also worked out for the Bears. A 2008 fourth-round pick of the Giants, Kehl spent the past two seasons in St. Louis, where he saw limited snaps for one of the league's worst linebacker corps in 2011. He'd be primarily a special teamer in Washington.

Rams LB Bryan Kehl (ankle) has been downgraded from questionable to out.

Kehl was set to test the ankle today but apparently couldn't put enough pressure on it to be available for Sunday. Brady Poppinga is expected to start in a linebacker group that features a host of BYU and Ohio State connections in Kehl, Poppinga, and James Laurinaitis.

Bryan Kehl has taken over as the Rams' starting weak-side linebacker, replacing Larry Grant.

The Rams can no longer "boast" an all-Ohio State linebacker corps, as Kehl played college ball at BYU. Kehl has 10 tackles in his last two games. He'll be an every-down linebacker and is worth a look in deep IDP leagues.

Rams claimed LB Bryan Kehl off waivers from the Giants.

Kehl started one game and appeared in 14 last year, and didn't embarrass himself. He also started twice as a rookie in '08. The Rams need help at linebacker and on special teams with Chris Chamberlain out indefinitely.

Giants waived LB Bryan Kehl.

A backup on the weakside, Kehl tied for the team lead in special teams tackles last year. He was responsible for a blocked punt on Sunday, though, and Coach Tom Coughlin hinted that the play led to Kehl's release.
Tue, Sep 14, 2010 04:33:00 PM

Giants LB Bryan Kehl (broken finger) returned to a full practice Thursday and is expected to play this week against the Saints.

Kehl will work behind weak side linebacker Chase Blackburn while Michael Boley remains out following knee surgery.

Giants reserve LB Bryan Kehl is week-to-week after undergoing surgery to repair a broken finger.

GM Jerry Reese has a sterling reputation for providing his team with plenty of depth, but this is getting ridiculous. Kehl was expected to see time with Michael Boley (torn meniscus) out, but Chase Blackburn will handle weak side duties by himself now.
Tue, Oct 6, 2009 07:39:00 PM

Bryan Kehl has emerged as the clear frontrunner to start at weak-side linebacker for the Giants in Week 1.

Gerris Wilkinson's roster spot could be in danger when Michael Boley comes back from suspension. Kehl is standing out in coverage, picking off passes left and right. He'll be a backup from Week 2 on, but provides terrific depth.
