The Washington Redskins have claimed journeyman linebacker and former Kansas City Chiefs player Bryan Kehl on waivers, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Kehl played 28 games for Saint Louis during the 2010 and 2011 regular seasons, starting two games and recording 42 tackles. He began his career with the New York Giants, where in 2008 he played in all 16 games as a rookie, recording 25 tackles, one sack, and one interception.

The 6'2 linebacker played for the Redskins during the 2012 preseason, but has yet to see the field this year for regular season action.

Kehl was drafted in the fourth round of the 2008 draft by the Giants out of Brigham Young University. In four years at BYU, Kehl became a rock of Bronco Mendenhall's stout defense, recording 205 tackles, 21 for loss, and seven sacks. BYU was 22-4 in Kehl's final two college seasons. Kehl also served a two-year mission for the LDS Church in Toronto, Canada.
