Redskins’ Bryan Kehl puts his best foot forward with roster cuts approaching
Linebacker is on the roster bubble, but had a great game Wednesday
Question of the Day
“It’s kind of interesting this year. This is my fifth year; I’ve never been so uncertain as I am right now. I really don’t know what they’re going to do. It’s just kind of a numbers deal. I’ve never been on a linebacker corps that’s so talented. Also I’ve never been in a defense that I’ve loved so much,” Kehl said. “So I’ve never wanted to make a team as much as I want to make this one, and I’ve never been as uncertain as I am right now. That being said, I’m confident and hopeful and very pleased with what I put out there, and I hope they make a good decision. I know that I can help the football team.”
Kehl made a good last impression in the preseason, showing that he can help in a lot of ways. Scoring on the interception would have been “a little cherry on top,” but fundamentally the BYU product understands he needs to be valuable on special teams.
“I don’t know how much they value that, but I think it should help. Unbiased, I look at myself as good a special teamer as there is out there,” he said. “They got good special teamers and I know that I can help them out on special teams. Will they value that? I don’t know. I hope they do, and I hope that maybe that’s the deciding factor. Maybe it’s not, I don’t know.”
But Kehl presented his case Wednesday and throughout this preseason.
“I’m pleased with the body of work, from the start of camp, OTAs, everything what I put out there,” he said. “I think I’ve shown that I can contribute, defense and special teams especially. I don’t make decisions; they’ll make the decisions. We’ll see what happens. But I’m pleased and definitely at peace with what I put out there.”
