Hours after the injury to Eric Berry and the announcement Sanders Commings is having surgery on a broken ankle, the Kansas City Chiefs sign veteran safety Steve Gregory to replenish some of what they lost.
Gregory is an eight year vet who has spent time with the San Diego Chargers and New England Patriots, and has appeared in 28 games over the last two seasons. PFF graded his last two seasons as -1.9 and +1.7 respectively. Basically he’s a league average safety.
As for Commings…
#Chiefs haven’t announced Gregory signing yet because they need to make roster move. Commings to IR?

The general summation of the Chiefs secondary situation is this:
Either someone like Jerron McMillian or Daniel Sorensen really needs to pick up his play or the Chiefs may need to look into signing another player. Ed Reed is still available but he is slowing down. It wouldn’t be a surprise if the Chiefs look for another “Marcus Cooper” after 53-man cuts at the end of August.
