Redskins Claim Kehl, Waive Addison

Posted Nov 29, 2012

The Redskins announced today that they have claimed linebacker Bryan Kehl off of waivers. In addition, the team waived linebacker Mario Addison.

The Washington Redskins announced today that they have claimed linebacker Bryan Kehl off of waivers from the Kansas City Chiefs.

In a corresponding move, the team waived linebacker Mario Addison from the active roster

Kehl (6-2, 244) was originally selected by the New York Giants in the fourth round (123rd overall) of the 2008 NFL Draft out of Brigham Young.

He has appeared in 62 career games with five starts in four NFL seasons, and recorded 58 tackles, one interception, one sack, two fumbles recovered and a pass defensed, according to STATS, LLC.

Kehl spent the 2012 preseason with the Redskins, compiling a team-high 17 tackles (seven solo) with three passes defensed, two sacks and an interception.

He was released by the Redskins on Aug. 31, 2012, before signing with the Kansas City Chiefs on Oct. 3. Kehl appeared in three games with Kansas City before being waived on Nov. 27.

Last season, Kehl appeared in 14 games with one start in his first full season with the St. Louis Rams. In 2010, he played in 14 games with one start for the Rams after being claimed off waivers from the New York Giants on Sept. 15.

Kehl spent the first 31 games of his career with the Giants, earning three starts and compiling 28 tackles, one interception, one sack and two fumbles recovered.

Kehl, 28, played collegiately at BYU where he played in 48 games with 26 starts. He amassed 205 tackles (108 solo), seven sacks, 20.5 stops for losses, two forced fumbles and three fumbles recovered. He also recorded three interceptions, including one interception return for touchdown.

As a senior in 2007, he started all 13 games at weakside linebacker and served as team captain, eventually being tabbed as an All-Mountain West Conference first team selection as well as earning Academic All-MWC honors.

Kehl was born on June 16, 1984. He attended Brighton High School in Cottonwood Heights, Utah.

Addison (6-3, 257) joined the Redskins on Oct. 9, 2012 after previously appearing on the Indianapolis Colts’ practice squad. He appeared in five games with the Redskins.
