Lions Pick Up Another Former Chief

The Kansas City Chiefs waived 2008 draft pick LB/DE Brian Johnston on Wednesday.  He didn't make it far on the waiver list as the Detroit Lions claimed him yesterday.  He was drafted under the Gunther Cunningham defensive regime so it makes sense that that the Lions defensive coordinator is going with what he's familiar with.

This marks the second 2008 draft pick Cunningham and the Lions have picked up from the Chiefs on the waiver wire.

On April 13th, the Chiefs released 2008 4th round pick WR Will Franklin. Just one day later, the Lions picked him up, only to then release him a month later.

Cunningham also raided a former Chief when he opted to pick up defensive Eric Hicks on May 4th.  Hicks played for the Chiefs from 1998-2006.

Who will be the next ex-Chief to become a Lion?
