According to Jason Kersey of newsok.com, Kansas City Chiefs defensive tackle Kelly Gregg plans to retire this offseason.
Gregg hasn’t announced it yet, but he plans to retire after a long NFL career. He spent 11 seasons as a defensive lineman with the Baltimore Ravens. Gregg played his last year with the Kansas City Chiefs.
This was expected. Gregg is 35 years old and has been playing nose tackle, generally considered to be one of the most demanding positions in football, for a number of years now. He has 551 career tackles and 20.5 sacks.
The Chiefs have put off finding a long-term solution at nose tackle since Scott Pioli arrived. It would appear that this offseason is the time to finally get that done.
Then again, I’ve said that about the last three offseasons.
