New Orleans Saints agree to terms on a one year deal with defensive end Turk McBride, according to a league source per CBS Sports Saints Correspondent Larry Holder.
McBride was drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in the 2007 NFL Draft’s second round, 54th overall out of the University of Tennessee. He signed a three-year contract with the team on July 24, 2007. He spent most of the 2008 season on injured reserve.
The Chiefs waived McBride then he was was claimed off waivers by the Detroit Lions in September 2009.
After the 2010 season, he became a free agent and on July 31, 2011, he signed with the New Orleans Saints.
Last season was a disappointing season to say the least, but the New Orleans Saints apparently want to give him another chance.
He played in eight games due to an ankle injury but only recorded four tackles, two sacks, and one forced fumble.
In his five year career he managed 119 tackles, 9.5 sacks, but only one pass deflection.
