Taking the handoff and running through the right side of the offensive line, Gray put a double-move on the defender and accelerated on his left foot for a few extra yards down the field.
It wasn’t just Gray that was showing his moves either, fellow running back
Take those two big plays, plus physical blocks to the ground from offensive linemen
On the defensive side of the ball, the Chiefs saw a new face wearing No. 47 as veteran safety
Gregory, an eight-year veteran, has spent time with both the San Diego Chargers and New England Patriots. He’s played in 111 games and has 357 tackles, three sacks and seven interceptions in his career.
Chiefs defensive coordinator Bob Sutton spoke about Gregory after practice.
“We got a veteran player, an experienced guy that has been in a lot of different systems, most recently New England,” Sutton said. “So, his biggest transition will be terminology. What he might have been used to calling apples, we call oranges. So, that’s going to be his first transition.
“He’s got to get back into pads and understand all that stuff, which we’re going to give him the time to do that. But I think we got us a good football player, a guy that can take command back there—he’s done that in the past in his career.”
Gregory spoke to the media after practice about getting the call from the Chiefs.
“I’ve been trying to stay in shape all summer just waiting for my number to be called,” Gregory said. “I was happy that the Chiefs did call me. I’m really excited to be here [and] be part of this organization. They have a lot of great things going on here and I’m just really pumped to be here.”
The Chiefs return to practice Saturday morning at 8:15 a.m.
