Chiefs Add Defensive Lineman

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.

    Iam starting to lose interest as I think that makes either 4 or 5 no-namers now. The kid was “undrafted”, that should tell you something right there.

    The Chiefs don’t have a great deal of leeway due to the cap numbers. The Emmanuel Sanders incident probably messed up Dorsey’s offseason plans immensely. I believe that they are try to get some depth with low-priced/developmental free agents and address other needs through the draft.

    There’s a signpost up ahead….you’ve now entered the dog days of the off-season.

    Got to have bodies. There are about 4-5 bodies to back up Poe. None played much last year, just not good enough, he played something like 93% of defensive snaps all alone. One more.

    Sort of says we are done in free agency. Now we are going for bodies who might just make the roster.

    Guess we get to look forward to draft.

    Quit your bitching. The guy was injured. So what if he was I drafted. The league has quite a few in drafted players who contribute. Once again. We will see.
