Leigh Bodden Waiver update

As Peter King of Sports Illustrated pointed out today in his Monday Morning Quarterback column, former New England Patriots CB Leigh Bodden, who was abruptly waived on Friday for some reason will be claimed on waivers by 4pm today.

Any team can make a waivers claim for his contract, and the team with the worst record will have the highest waiver priority.  King notes that the 49ers, Bengals, Bucs, Chiefs, Bills, and New York Jets could make a claim.

Bodden is due $2.064 million for the rest of 2011 and has a base salary of $3.9 million for each of the next two seasons.

The 30 year old was an undrafted signing in 2003 by the Cleveland Browns and is known to Jets fans for his 2009 Week 11 game where he intercepted rookie Jets quarterback Mark Sanchezthree times, returning one for a 56-yard TD.

He has been thrown at 22 times this season, allowing 12 receptions and one touchdown.
