The Kansas City Chiefs waived veteran LB Bryan Kehl on Tuesday and he never hit free agency. The Washington Redskins claimed Kehl, who spent the preseason in DC before being a part of final their final cut down.
Kehl first landed with the Chiefs on October 3 and immediately was active on game day later that week. He appeared in three games for Kansas City without recording a tackle.
In his five-plus seasons in the league, including stops with the New York Giants and St. Louis Rams, Kehl has 110 tackles in 62 games (five starts).
It’s a great move for Kehl, considering he goes from maybe a special teamer with the worst team in the league to likely contributing on defense along with special teams for a Redskins squad in the middle of a playoff race.
