ST. JOSEPH, MO – Reports emerged early Saturday morning that free agent NT Kelly Gregg had agreed to terms with the Chiefs, pending a physical. The Chiefs have now confirmed that Gregg’s signing is a done deal.
Gregg will be permitted to participate only in team meetings until August 4th under terms of the new Collective Bargaining Agreement.
A native of Wichita, Kansas, Gregg entered the NFL as a sixth-round selection (173rd overall) of Philadelphia in the 1999 NFL Draft. He’s played in 138 regular season games (123 starts) with Philadelphia (’99) and Baltimore (2001-10), recording 721 tackles (466 solo) and 19.5 sacks (-97.5 yards). He also has 12 passes defensed, two forced fumbles and six fumble recoveries.
Gregg has also seen action in eight postseason contests (six starts), including last year’s AFC Wild Card Game at Arrowhead Stadium, totaling 24 tackles (17 solo) and a half a sack (-4.5 yards).
