Chiefs Add An LSU Tiger Defensive Lineman to the Practice Squad

New, comments

Josh Looney of lets us know that former LSU Tiger Marlon Favorite has been added to the practice squad.  He was one of the three defensive linemen that reportedly worked out for the Chiefs a couple weeks ago.

Per Looney:

DL Marlon Favorite, a former teammate of fellow Chiefs defensive linemen Glenn Dorsey and Tyson Jackson has joined the practice squad. Favorite entered the NFL as a rookie free agent with Carolina in 2009. He was released by the Panthers following training camp.

Favorite is expected to join the club for practice this morning.

Like I said before, this means that the Chiefs could potentially line up an all-LSU defensive line at some point.

A spot on the practice squad opened up when Barry Richardson was activated in the wake of Branden Albert's injury.  It appears that Richardson will stay on the active roster for the moment.
