'Your papers, please' must never be heard in America

Redskins linebacker Bryan Kehl makes his living covering kickoffs in the NFL. That's why his reaction to the possibility of the NFL eliminating kickoffs from the game was a bit surprising on Friday.
Jason Babin didn't wind up with the Washington Redskins, awarded to the Jacksonville Jaguars off waivers from the Philadelphia Eagles on Wednesday, but coach Mike Shanahan liked him enough to try to nab him.
As players filed out of the Washington Redskins locker room Wednesday night after the team's 30-3 victory over Tampa Bay — and into some uncertain futures — the overriding emotion was hope. That was especially true among a group of wide receivers whose position battle was the Redskins' most competitive this summer.
It looked good on paper. Before Wednesday night's 30-3 preseason win, Washington Redskins linebacker Bryan Kehl jotted down what he wanted to accomplish.
"I thought it was interesting," Kehl said. "I can't really say I'm for or against it. I like what they're trying to do because I do agree that kickoff is the most dangerous play in football."
"Do I want to go smack into the wedge? No," he said.
