Chiefs Sign DL Cory Grissom

The Kansas City Chiefs have added some depth along the defensive line by coming to terms with DL Cory Grissom on a one-year deal.

Grissom caught on with the New England Patriots last season after going undrafted out of South Florida, but an ankle injury forced him onto IR for his rookie campaign. Instead of getting another look at him this offseason, the Patriots released Grissom last week.

During his five years at South Florida, Grissom played in 46 games (40 starts) and had 105 tackles (16.5 TFL), five sacks, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. Though he got hurt with the Patriots and had some early injury issues at South Florida, Grissom ended up being extremely durable in college, starting every game in his final three seasons.
