Bryan Kehl to join Redskins at ILB

April 23, 2012

The Washington Redskins announced Monday that they have agreed to terms with free agent linebacker Bryan Kehl.

Formerly of the St. Louis Rams and New York Giants, Kehl played outside linebacker earlier in his career. But he is expected to move to inside linebacker where he and Lorenzo Alexander would back up London Fletcher and Perry Riley.

Kehl also is a solid special teams player.

The 6-foot-2, 244-pound Kehl appeared in 14 games for the Rams last season, starting one of them. The four-year veteran has recorded 110 tackles, a sack and an interception during his career.

Last year’s backup inside linebackers, Keyaron Fox and Rocky McIntosh, both saw their contracts expire this offseason, and the Redskins didn’t appear to have interest in re-signing either one.
