The Chiefs coaching staff is thrilled to have Gregg. He has been a standout at camp and is a standout run stuffer. He solidifies the Chiefs’ defensive front. Kansas City was looking for a nose tackle since before the lockout, and when Gregg was a salary-cap casualty in Baltimore, the Chiefs jumped on him.
Gregg helps fill a leadership void left after linebacker Mike Vrabel retired. He has taken to the role well and his presence in the young defensive-line meeting room has been welcome, coaches say.
“I’m happy to be a leader,” Gregg said. “I had a lot of guys in Baltimore help me over the years, so now it’s my turn to help the young guys here. It’s easy because they are all good players.”
