Bryan Kehl

According the Washington Redskins' Twitter feed, they have reached a contract agreement with former Giants LB and special teams ace Bryan Kehl.

As per our colleagues at CSN Washington:

Kehl is a four-year veteran who was drafted by the Giants in the fourth round in 2008. He has mostly been a special teams performer in New York and, most recently, with the Rams. Playing in 59 of a possible 64 games during his career, he has just five starts at linebacker.

The release of Bryan Kehl was the fourth surprising cut by the Giants over the past two weeks.

Kehl has the look of a prototypical linebacker. A standout in BYU?s 3-4 scheme as an outside pass rusher, he has yet to break through as an NFL player. It can be argued that Kehl?s raw talent was hampered by his landing spot come draft day. Of all the 4-3 defenses to be brought into, the Giants were the worst fit.

It is no secret that the Giants have been carrying at least four top level defensive ends since the 2007 campaign. This year the total grew to five with the addition of Jason Pierre-Paul. For a mid-level draft pick striving to see the field, the opportunities were slim. When other defenses might have dialed up a rush from an extra linebacker, the Giants simply placed another DE in the spot.
