Saints Sign Defensive End Turk McBride

New, comments

The New Orleans Saints have added some depth to their defensive line tonight by signing DE Turk McBride. The news comes via Larry Holder on Twitter:

#Saints have agreed to terms with DE Turk McBride, according to a league source.

McBride played with the Lions last year, recording five sacks. Prior to that he was a member of the Kansas City Chiefs.

SB Nation colleague Sean Yuille from Pride of Detroit doesn't seem to happy about the Lions losing McBride:

...the only two things left for the Detroit Lions to do were to re-sign defensive ends Cliff Avril and Turk McBride. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like the latter of the two will end up being re-signed by the Lions...

I was hoping the Lions would bring McBride back. While he wasn't a starter, he is talented and a great fit in the Lions' defense
