CHIEFS AGREE TO TERMS WITH TE KENDALL GAMMON
Mar 30, 2005, 5:41:55 AM


Kansas City Chiefs President Carl Peterson announced on Tuesday that the club has agreed to the terms of a one-year deal with TE Kendall Gammon. As per Chiefs policy, no other terms of the agreement were made available.

Gammon (6-4, 255) has appeared in every game of his professional career, a string of 208 consecutive games over the past 13 seasons, the longest active streak in the league among non-kickers. He was selected to his first Pro Bowl following the 2004 season as a “need player” by Pittsburgh head coach Bill Cowher. The accomplished long-snapper has appeared in 80 games over five seasons with the Chiefs after spending four seasons in both Pittsburgh (’92-95) and New Orleans (’96-99). Gammon, who has seen duty in eight postseason games including Super Bowl XXX while with Pittsburgh, has also recorded a total of 36 special teams tackles in his career.

Since joining the Chiefs in 2000, Gammon has become one of the club’s most active members in the Kansas City community. Serving as the Spokesperson for the Kansas City Free Health Clinic, he has helped promote wellness and quality health services for low-income, uninsured or under-insured individuals who do not have access to health care. Gammon has also been an active participant in the Chiefs “Read Across America” initiative, which promotes literacy among Kansas City youth. Gammon is also the owner of Paradise Nursery, a 42-acre garden center in Kansas City, Missouri.

A product of Pittsburg State, Gammon started 41 games for the Gorillas at both tackle and guard. A three-time All-Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletic Association selection, the Rose Hill, Kansas native helped Pittsburg State to the ‘91 NCAA Division II National Championship.

Wow...found this a few pages deep.

Not one person posted his/her love for Gammon- a Kansas boy who is arguably one of the most consistent, if not best long snapper in the game.

Where's the love for Gammon? :harumph:

I saw this news on the crawl at the bottom of the screen on ESPN last night. I got all excited when I read the first few words "Chiefs announce signing of....." Then it was a bit of a let down.... no offense to KG.
