Redskins claim LB Kehl off waivers, cut LB Addison

The Washington Redskins have claimed linebacker Bryan Kehl off

waivers and released linebacker Mario Addison.

Kehl spent training camp with the Redskins but was cut at the

end of preseason. He has since played three games with the Kansas

City Chiefs before being cut this week.

Kehl has also played with the New York Giants and St. Louis Rams

in his five-year NFL career.

Addison was signed by the Redskins in early October and played

in five games.

The Redskins were also one of three teams to put in a waiver

claim for former Philadelphia Eagles two-time Pro Bowl defensive

end Jason Babin.

Babin was awarded to the Jacksonville Jaguars, who had the worst

record among the three teams. The Buffalo Bills also put in a

claim.
