Chiefs released CB David Macklin.

Macklin, 31, likely wasn't going to make the Chiefs before his DUI arrest in Virginia last week. It'd be a small surprise to see him back in the league.

Chiefs CB David Macklin was arrested Friday morning and charged with a DUI in Newport News, Virginia.

As a player who is little more than roster fodder, Macklin can't afford to be spending the offseason in the doghouse. It wouldn't be surprising if this incident leads to his release.

Rams agreed to terms with CB David Macklin on a one-year contract.

Macklin was once a decent corner in the Colts' Tampa 2. Players from that secondary system rarely play well elsewhere, and Macklin further confirms it. If the Rams think of him as more than a dime back, they could be in trouble.

Redskins declared CB David Macklin, TE Cody Boyd, DT Lorenzo Alexander, WR Shaun Bodiford, DT Ryan Boschetti, RB Marcus Mason, and OL Todd Wade inactive for Sunday's Week 1 game. Mark Brunell is the third QB.

Macklin, Washington's dime corner, lost out to Leigh Torrence in a special teams move. Wade has a bum shoulder. Mason is an undrafted rookie.

Redskins signed cornerback David Macklin to a one-year, $760,000 contract. The deal includes a $40,000 signing bonus.

The former Cardinals' starter could upgrade Washington's dime defense.

CB David Macklin visited with the Chiefs Wednesday.

We're surprised Kansas City doesn't get younger at cornerback. Denver has also shown interest in Macklin.

The Broncos recently put in a call to free agent CB David Macklin.

ESPN's John Clayton speculates that this may be an indication of Denver's willingness to deal the reportedly disgruntled Dre' Bly. Still, it seems very unlikely that Macklin would ever start for the Broncos.

Cardinals placed cornerback David Macklin on injured reserve with a strained hamstring, ending his season.

Macklin lost his starting job at the start of the season but eventually got it back from Eric Green. Green is the future at the position despite his inconsistency, and it won't be great for Arizona if Macklin returns and ends up starting again. He's unlikely to be brought back.

Cardinals CB David Macklin strained his hamstring on Sunday.

The veteran starter was knocked out of the game. Eric Green stepped in.

Cardinals CB David Macklin has regained his starting job.

Macklin lost his spot on the first series of the season to 2005 third-round pick Eric Green, who was since benched on multiple occasions. A slower veteran, we suspect Macklin will see a lot of Mike Furrey on Sunday.

CB David Macklin (hamstring) is expected to be listed as doubtful for Sunday's game.

With CB Antrel Rolle (knee) out for the year and CB Raymond Walls (groin) also hurting, the Cardinals are in rough shape heading into their game against Carolina.

CB David Macklin (hamstring) sat out practice yesterday.

Macklin is listed as questionable for Sunday's game, and with CB Antrel Rolle (knee) out the Arizona secondary is in shambles.

The Cardinals signed cornerback David Macklin, formerly of the Colts, to a three-year deal.

Macklin will take David Barrett's placed in the secondary. It's not a downgrade.
