NFL safety Steve Gregory announced his retirement from football on Saturday after he had briefly spent time with the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Chiefs signed Gregory in the summer to provide depth behind Eric Berry and Husain Abdullah. The retired safety had performed solidly for the New England Patriots in the last two seasons, and he made 11 starts for the Patriots to compensate for injuries on the roster.
Gregory recorded a career-high 79 tackles and added a sack. He had also grabbed two interceptions in the 2012 season. The biggest play of his career was when he recovered a fumble from Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez for a touchdown on the Thanksgiving game that is still a painful memory for Jets fans.
Gregory played a total of eight seasons in his career, and the majority of it was spent with the San Diego Chargers. He recorded a total of 357 tackles and seven interceptions throughout his career.
