Chiefs Add LB With Super Bowl Sack, Ring

There are three Pro Bowl linebackers on the Chiefs roster. But there were no linebackers that have a sack in the Super Bowl or a championship ring.

They have one now in Frank Zombo, a 3-year veteran from the Green Bay Packers signed with the Chiefs on Wednesday. The 6-3, 254-pound Michigan native can play both inside and outside linebacker.

Zombo was playing outside linebacker in Super Bowl XLV where he was in the starting lineup because of injuries to the Green Bay defense. Against Pittsburgh, he had the Packers only sack of the game, taking down Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger. He finished the game with 5 tackles and the sack in the Green Bay victory.

In 3 seasons with the Packers, Zombo’s career has been marked by injuries. He’s played in 25 games with 9 starts, missing time in 2010 with a right knee injury and 2011 it was a broken shoulder blade. He opened the 2012 season on the PUP list due to a hamstring problem and wasn’t activated until November.

He joined the Packers as an undrafted rookie out of Central Michigan University. He was a three-year starter at DE for the Chippewas, playing in 55 games with 181 total tackles, 39 tackles for loss, 25.5 career sacks to rank second in school history for taking down the quarterbacks.

    Unfortunately, he ability does not match up with his name. Dorsey will get guys he is familiar with to fill roster, like Pioli did. The difference may be that Dorsey actually taken a active role in GB not fetching coffee like Pioli. At least I will buy into it until ……

    Zombo could be a versatile player filling a position of need if he can stay on the field and out of the training room. I hope he works out.

    In his 3rd year he is cheaper than Studabaker in his 5th. Eventually we need to fill the ILB next to DJ.
