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.
