Chiefs are bringing back linebacker Frank Zombo

With the clock ticking toward the free agency period, teams are scrambling to hang onto their own role players.

The Chiefs have done just that, agreeing to a new deal with linebacker Frank Zombo, according to Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports.

Zombo played in all 16 games for the Chiefs last year, with 2.0 sacks. But he’s the kind of fill-in that good teams need.

General Manager John Dorsey brought him over after three years in Green Bay, and he was a solid part for the Chiefs.

Plus, he’s Frank Zombo, and unless you can get Barkevious Mingo, it’s the kind of name you want on your roster.

    Wouldn’t it be cool if his first name was really Franco?

    A monster on special teams and good fill in OLB for depth.

    “Zombo, Zombo……”

    Ok – that’s all I have to contribute here.

    With a name like Zombo, he’s got to be good.

    Zombo is a solid backup, it’s good to see him returning! OLB depth for the Chiefs is very important with Tamba Hali aging.

    they have a lot of work to do, so getting a guy like this with a fantastic name who will be part of the 53 as a key special teams player and backup=smart move

    2nd year in the system too, kind of a no brainer with so many holes-DE/WR/S/G/CB

    Not exactly the kind of impact signing that us Chiefs fans were looking for. Make it Geoff Schwartz and we’ll have something worth getting excited over.

    Zombo! Z0mbo! Zombo!

    This is the same reason I said Blaine Gabbert won’t be good. He just doesn’t have a name that rings a bell, names mean everything. He’s going to need a boss nickname before is respected.

    Frank Zombie brought back…from the dead?

    Zombo was a character from the Munsters. Google it!
