Not a bad first day for Josh Looney with the live Chiefs call-in show. He just broke the news of who the Chiefs released to make room for Bobby Wade.
It's Turk McBride.
He was drafted under the previous regime in 2007 as a second round pick. He was drafted to be a defensive end with the Herm Edwards 4-3 defense. The switch to the 3-4 under the new regime moved him to outside linebacker.
We haven't heard a lot of positives out of McBride's position switch so this move isn't too surprising. It's always a gamble to move an end to linebacker. Some guys just aren't a fit.
So, McBride is out and Wade is in.
Here is the official release on the signing of Bobby Wade.
As always, we wish Turk the best of luck in the future.
