Browns and Chiefs Release Linebackers

The Kansas City Chiefs and Cleveland Browns have both released a linebacker.

Kansas City released third year linebacker Turk McBride, McBride had 55 tackles and a sack at outside linebacker.

However, after not playing in week one and the addition of wide receiver Bobby Wade somebody had to go.

Interestingly, the Chiefs opted to keep second year linebacker Andy Studebaker who was active last week against Baltimore.

McBride will go through waivers, and possible suitors include the Lions (ex-Chiefs defensive coordinator Gunther Cunningham holds the same position there) and the Bears who are still looking for a replacement for Urlacher and Tinoisamoa.

Cleveland released four year man Leon Williams who was playing outside linebacker but has more experience playing inside.

Just like McBride, Williams was inactive against Minnesota but has recorded 163 tackles and five sacks for the Browns.

He'll go through waivers and should find some takers, namely the Buffalo Bills and New England Patriots who lost Paul Posluzsny and Jerod Mayo respectively for several weeks each.
