Looks like the Chiefs are going to have to go back to the drawing board when it comes to finding veteran safety depth. Steve Gregory, who was signed shortly after Sanders Commings injury, has announced his retirement from the NFL.
So, with Steve Gregory’s abrupt retirement, expect the Chiefs to be searching for veteran safety help

Gregory’s agent provided this statement from Gregory:
It is with tremendous respect, appreciation, and admiration for the game of football that I’ve decided to announce my retirement effective immediately. After entering the game as an undrafted free agent, I was fortunate enough to play twice as long as the average player. This past offseason, my wife Rosanne and I were blessed to welcome a daughter, Aviana, and spending time with here has changed my life’s perspective. It is my hope to continue football as a coach and I look forward to what the future holds. I’m tremendously happy with my decision and being able to walk away from this great game both healthy and on my own terms. I would be remiss in announcing my retirement without thanking my great family, coaches, teammates, scouts, trainers, agent and all of the fans that have supported me along the way.
