This is the signing that Chiefs fans have been waiting for — at least some signs of life for a defensive line that is woefully thin, especially on the inside. Joe Fortenpaugh is reporting that the Kansas City Chiefs have signed Kelly Gregg, defensive tackle, to a one-year deal.
Gregg has been a force in the defensive interior for the Baltimore Ravens for the last decade, bringing a wealth of playoff experience with him to Kansas City. He’s also been consistently healthy the last two seasons, starting all 32 regular season games after missing all of 2008 due to microfracture surgery on his knee. Last year he had 34 tackles and it was his first year as a starter that he hadn’t recording at least one sack.
The Chiefs now have at least Gregg and rookie Jerrelle Powe in the middle after losing Ron Edwards and Shaun Smith to the Panthers and Titans respectively.
