Turk McBride still feels himself inching toward the defensive line, home for so long, and the comfort his old position would bring. He's adjusting now to being a full-time linebacker, a position he's never played, and the Chiefs' third-year player still has to remind himself at times that he no longer belongs on the line.

good read, the new LB's are not doing as well as hoped but better than feared, about as well as expected!! lots more to come

I believe Turk is down around 260 now, not sure about Hali and Studebaker though. including these players we have 14 LB's in camp. www.arrowheadpride.com (http://www.arrowheadpride.com) has a little differrent read on our Lb's and another on our new RB.

Im not sure about this McBride to linebacker thing.

Mostly because of what McBride says himself.

He and Hali were both DE/DTs in college. That doesn't usually scream of LB potential to me.:D

ya this looks to be one of those things to where it "really works" or "really doesnt".

I hope not the latter. I couldnt deal w/ another season like last.

Hali did play som LB at PSU in his early years. at Penn State it seems everyone takes a turn at LB, even some QB's have ended up as LB's
