As I mentioned last week, throughout the course of this season we'll be checking in on non-starters who increase their stock from week to week. Obviously this series will be a lot more meaningful when preseason and regular season begins play, but there are still a couple of non-starters who have already increased their stock in the brief training camp that has already occurred.
Tyler Polumbus, RT: I don't know how a single Redskins fan or Robert Griffin III fan can be comfortable hearing the name "Tyler Polumbus" followed by "starting right tackle". Polumbus has been a walking Monday tryout punchline in the NFL for a couple years now and one of those regular season Monday transactions landing him with the Skins due to an injury plagued offensive line in 2010. Mike Shanahan signed the undrafted free agent in Denver in 2008 out of Colorado. Since then Polumbus has been cut by not only the Broncos but the Seahawks and Lions also. He did start games in Denver and Seattle, but everyone from Washington to Waco should be squirming in their seats when the Skins go to Buffalo next week.
Bryan Kehl, ILB: With Jonathan Goff being cut due to injury, Bryan Kehl become the most experienced backup at inside linebacker for the Redskins. The 28 year old veteran has spent time with the Giants and Rams, where he's started five games in his four year NFL career. Fans still have to be unsure of Lorenzo Alexander's capabilities at the inside linebacker position, so Kehl is at the top of a battle right now with Alexander and rookies Keenan Robinson and DJ Holt for a role as the primary back up in 2012.
