On Wednesday, the Chiefs continued their shopping at the bargain basement of NFL free agents when they agreed to terms with defensive lineman Ticory “Cory” Grissom.
Undrafted last season coming out of the University of South Florida, Grissom signed with New England and played in the pre-season there before suffering a high ankle sprain in the Patriots third pre-season game against Detroit. He spent the year on the injured-reserve list.
Grissom was released by the Patriots on March 10th.
The 6-1, 316-pound Grissom will be 24 in June and is a native of LaGrange, Georgia where he attended Troup County High School. At South Florida, he was a three-year starter and opened 40 of the 46 games he played for the Bulls. He finished his career with 105 total tackles, 16.5 tackles for loss and five sacks.
