Steve Gregory retires

The Chiefs signed veteran safety Steve Gregory at the end of July to bolster their depth chart at a position where they’ve already lost Sanders Commings for an extended period of time.

They’ll need to look elsewhere if that’s something they want to have for the rest of camp and into the regular season. Gregory announced his retirement in a statement released via his agent David Canter.

“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,” Gregory said. “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 in 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.”

Gregory played eight seasons in the NFL, six with the Chargers and two with the Patriots, and retires with seven interceptions, three sacks and two touchdowns over 111 NFL games.

    111 games is a darn good carrier.

    Didn’t have all the physical gifts in the world, but made up for it by being a smart player. He should make a good coach.

    Steve Gregory will always have his place in trivia history as the player who returned ( most memorable moment in Jets history ) the BUTTFUMBLE for the TD.

    Smart, tough, durable depth player .. the kind of player Bill Belichick loves. Fans in New England will always remember him for the buttfumble scoop and score. Wish him all the best with his life after football.
