Kehl is First Former Cougar to Find a New Home During NFL Draft Week

While former Brigham Young Cougars Matt Reynolds, Hebron Fangupo, and others anxiously wait the to learn their NFL fate later this week, one former Cougar has already found his new home.

Linebacker Bryan Kehl has signed a free agent contract with the Washington Redskins. Kehl played at BYU in 2002 and from 2005-07. In Washington, Kehl joins his former college teammate John Beck. The terms of the contract have not been released.

Washington is a favorable destination for Kehl. The Redskins have only three other inside linebackers on the roster.

Kehl is entering his fifth year in the NFL. He was picked in the fourth round of the draft in 2008 by the New York Giants. Early in 2010, Kehl joined the St. Louis Rams. He has played in 59 games and started five. Kehl has been credited with 58 tackles, two fumble recoveries, one interception, one sack, and one pass defensed in the last four years.
