Kelly Gregg Plans To Retire, Says Report
Feb 15th at 10:20 am by Patrick AllenChiefs


According to Jason Kersey of newsok.com, Kansas City Chiefs defensive tackle Kelly Gregg plans to retire this offseason.

Gregg hasnít announced it yet, but he plans to retire after a long NFL career. He spent 11 seasons as a defensive lineman with the Baltimore Ravens. Gregg played his last year with the Kansas City Chiefs.

This was expected. Gregg is 35 years old and has been playing nose tackle, generally considered to be one of the most demanding positions in football, for a number of years now. He has 551 career tackles and 20.5 sacks.

The Chiefs have put off finding a long-term solution at nose tackle since Scott Pioli arrived. It would appear that this offseason is the time to finally get that done.

Then again, Iíve said that about the last three offseasons.

I would rather trade or get a nose tackle in free agency then trust this organization in drafting any d-lineman.

Judging from his play, he was semi retired last year.

Big loss for our Chiefs. He was a major reason why we had such a fantastic defense last year. Doesn't look good. :(

Romeo is the gold standard for 3-4 DL coaching for the last 20 years.

Get a clue.

Didn't watch many games, or don't know what you're watching?

I'm guessing both.

Yeah, that sure is the measuring stick for 3-4 2 gap nose guards.

This forsure!!!!!!

Hope he doesn't turn out like "Tank" we really can use him, especially in short yard or goal line situations.


Notice, add a R to Powe & you get POWER!

i'm not thinking he's "the answer". matter of fact, never seen him make a play.
i'd just like to see some big massive bodies, that possibly fit our scheme.
and a large amount of peeps around here seem to think he's a player.
i'm just a friggin' lemming, dude!

The problem with Gregg is that he didn't command enough double-teams. When you have 3 down linemen in a 2-gap scheme, you need guys to eat up blocks. Tyson Jackson was the only guy on the line that could consistently draw a double-team. Dorsey had his flashes but they seemed to be fleeting. Gregg looked fine but he did so because he was often 1-on-1 and shouldn't have been.

Agree, while I think he was serviceable, it kind of forces Pioli to add someone through FA. Which isnt a bad thing.

The top two tacklers on our defense were DJ and Belcher.

What does that say about the play of our nose guards?

Way more often than not, Gregg cleared the way for Belcher to blow up the fullback and for DJ to make the play.

It's not only about taking up two blockers in this scheme, it's about plugging the gal the offense wants to run in and Gregg did a pretty good job considering his age.

Of all the options available to us, he ended up being a pretty good stop gap.

Tyson was doing twice the work that Gregg was.

I'm not saying he wasn't serviceable - he absolutely was. That doesn't mean he was GOOD. He wasn't.

I think Gregg was the epitome of average play and the other nose we had (his name excapes me) was a little above average.

I don't think he was bad, or "Semi retired" though.

From all I've read and what I've watched, Soliai is the perfect fit for us at the Nose. He's a big body, who plays with a nasty attitude.

Pre draft you wont hear anything from Crennel. Its a position that requires a vet regardless if they draft someone. If they dont sign a FA before the draft speaks volumes as to what they think they have. No way Crennel relies on a rookie to be his anchor.

I'd be totally fine with Gordon, Powe and Soliai as our three nose guards.

That would be one heck of a good rotation.

After resigning Bowe and Carr, have no problem with going after Soliai.

It would be a great set of moves. Ideally the would go get 1 OL and get the 2nd in the draft but those first 3 guys should be the first 3 guys they go after. Well I guess whatever QB they think they should go for since we aren't getting one to help us right now in the draft. Orton is not the long-term answer but he is a whole lot better stop-gap then Cassel.

Orton fits the downfiled offense Daboll says he wants to play. Not a huge fan of OL in the 1st, hope that Richardson is there at 11 so we can trade down for picks. But doubt he will be. No major holes, outside QB, that you typically fill at 11.

Posted via Mobile DeviceYup. I had to look it up and listed him in a following post.

He was actually quite good IMO. I'd have no problem bringing him back.

The ONLY reason we shouldnt is if we can sign Soliai and they feel Powe can handle a bigger role. That's what I prefer.

If that's the case, I'd be ok with letting him walk and drafting a middle/late rounder as a developmental guy.
