Pascoe Promoted From Practice Squad, Kehl Waived

Clipped from: (share this clip)

With Kevin Boss uncertain and the only healthy tight end being Travis Beckum, the Giants promoted TE Bear Pascoe from the practice squad, according to Zach Berman of the Star Ledger. To make room for him, the Giants waived linebacker Bryan Kehl.

Promoting Pascoe makes sense, since he’s a much better blocker than Beckum. Plus, he knows the offense and was very good in camp.

Waiving Kehl, on the other hand, was a surprise. Kehl hadn’t done much in his first couple years in the pros, but always showed potential. Why him over oft-injured Gerris Wilkinson?

    I don’t get this. Kehl was actually a pretty good special teamer. Based on Sunday we need as many of them as possible. Gerris has had his chance.

    I do like Bear and hope he makes the most of this opportunity.

    I will explain this. With Blackburn out with his knee and Dillard out/inexperienced, and Bullock starting at strong side/week side (who can say but he plays outside LB now) we need to keep Wilkinson as first string middle LB. It was between Kehl and either Cruz or Calhoun. The Giants are betting no one will pick him up and I believe he can join the Giants practice squad. (Wilkinson can’t)

    I bet Bear does make the most of this opportunity.

    I wished to have said that Wilkinson was first string [b]back up.[/b]

    Wilkinson has more talent than Kehl, thats why he wasn’t cut. Besides Kehl is at best a third string LB. We are a professional franchise not the Rams we can’t afford to keep charity cases which is why Alford got cut.
