Turk McBride claimed, Quinton Culberson waived
Ex-Kansas City Chief, Turk McBride was claimed off waivers by the Detroit Lions.
McBride is a perfect fit for d. coordinator Gunther Cunningham's system as Cunningham held the same position for the Chiefs during McBride's tenure there.
Given the Lions state at defensive tackle, McBride will shift there from a defensive end/outside linebacker hybrid.
Also, in crappy team news the St. Louis Rams waived linebacker Quinton Culberson.
Culberson signed with the Rams as an undrafted free agent in 2007 and has registered 75 tackles and two pass deflections in two seasons with St. Louis.
