Earlier we told you that former New England Patriots CB Leigh Bodden could potentially be claimed off waivers today and that the Kansas City Chiefs were one of the teams rumored to have possible interest.
Well the deadline for teams to submit a claim has come and gone and according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.com, no NFL team took the bait.
That means Bodden is now an unrestricted free agent and that he is free to sign with any team that wants him.
That means the Patriots are on the hook for the rest of Bodden’s contact which could be good news for whomever decides to sign him. The CB will likely be apt to sign a more team-friendly deal since he will be collecting from New England.
We all know Scott Pioli loves a bargain so we’ll keep an eye on where Bodden signs. He might not be a bad one-year rental for a team looking to boost their CB play.
