Kelly Gregg Finds a Home in KC

Posted by Brad On July – 30 – 2011

Former Baltimore Raven Kelly Gregg has signed a one-year contract to join the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Chiefs were in dire need of defensive lineman and in particular a NT after the losses of Ron Edwards and Shaun Smith this week.  This signing will be much like Gregg’s career in that it won’t come with a ton of bells or whistles from a media/fan perspective but will pay dividends down the road.  Gregg has been unspectacular but solid throughout his career.  Many thought Gregg would be re-signed by the Ravens after the market dried up but KC jumped on the opportunity to sign Gregg.  It was widely believed that KC would attempt to land the bigger name in Aubrayo Franklin but they went for the steady more cost efficient option in Gregg.  And I love it from a KC perspective.  This one won’t draw the attention a Franklin signing would have but is a great pickup for a team on the right track.

KC has focused on re-signing their own and adding cost efficient veterans.  The additions of Gregg and Steve Breaston won’t come with the pub of a Philly-Nnamdi signing but they may be equally effective in the long run.  KC has filled needs and did it without breaking the bank or mortgaging future abilities to add talent.  I like what KC has done so far.

Steve Breaston to the Chiefs

"Steve Breaston signs with the Kansas City Chiefs"With two big name wide receivers inking deals today, Steve Breaston thought he would get in on the action.  The Kansas City Chiefs have agreed to terms with Steve Breaston on a five-year deal with $9 million guaranteed.

This move reunites Breaston and Todd Haley and allows Breaston to play a similar role as the one he played in Arizona.  Breaston will join Dwayne Bowe, Jonathan Baldwin, and Dexter McCluster to form a solid corps of WR’s.

Breaston has played in 60 games amassing 187 catches for 2,528 yards and 7 TD’s.  His best season came in 2008 when he caught 77 passes for 1,006 yards and 3 TD’s.
