After standing out for the Kansas City Chiefs on special teams in 2010, Cory Greenwood was re-signed to a one-year deal just before the league’s deadline for transactions. While talking to a Kingston newspaper, Greenwood said he was excited to be back with the Chiefs and relayed a meeting he had with the reigning Super Bowl MVP.
Greenwood is back in Kingston after taking a trip to Las Vegas with his Kansas City housemate and Chiefs teammate Ryan O’Callaghan last month.
While in Nevada, O’Callaghan introduced Greenwood to an old University of California teammate — one Aaron Rodgers, fresh off a win in the Super Bowl as quarterback of the Green Bay Packers.
Rodgers also was in Vegas enjoying a post-season getaway.
“He’s a really nice guy — funny and down to earth,” Greenwood said. “You wouldn’t even know he had just (won the Super Bowl).”
Greenwood was visiting Las Vegas for the third time, but it was his first trip there without his parents Peter and Lana.
“It lets you experience a little bit more,” Greenwood laughed.
At the very least, Greenwood deserved to have a little fun in Vegas after the season he had. There were fewer long shots in Kansas City Chiefs training camp, yet there he was every single week this season lining up on special teams.
Now at this point, it looks like he might need to find a new housemate since O’Callaghan wasn’t tendered a contract by the Chiefs. He could still return, but he will be an unrestricted free agent at a position the team will be looking to upgrade this offseason.
