Chiefs Waive Turk McBride; Lions to Claim Him?

The Kansas City Chiefs waived defensive lineman Turk McBride tonight, and Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio, who broke the story, thinks the Lions will claim him.

And so he'll be claimed by the Lions.

This time, we aren't kidding.  Lions defensive coordinator Gunther Cunningham served in that same capacity in K.C. when McBride was drafted, making McBride an obvious candidate for Honolulu Blue.

And, actually, the move to Motown would put McBride on a team that has actually won more games than the Chiefs since he entered the league in 2007.

(Our last win actually came against the Chiefs near the end of the 2007 season)

Based on the how the defensive ends played against the Saints and the fact that Paul Spicer visited today, I'd say Florio's guess is a pretty good one.  The Lions still control the top spot in waiver priority, and McBride would be an upgrade over someone like Copeland Bryan, who the Lions claimed on September 6.
