Gilberry, Arenas Team Up To Teach The Game

Kansas City Chiefs DE Wallace Gilberry hosted his second annual football camp this weekend and had a little help from one of his teammates to make sure the kids got as much help as possible.

He teamed up with other former Bama players, Javier Arenas and Rasheed Wallace, to strengthen young players skills on the football field.

Gilberry played high school ball at Baldwin County High School.  He believes youngsters should learn the fundamentals and respect for the game early in life.

“Right now, these kids are having fun and I am enjoying them,” Gilberry told FOX10 News Friday.

He’s only on camera for a little while, but Gilberry — a free agent once the labor mess gets resolved — sure looks like he has stayed in great shape this offseason.

How great is it for Arenas to be out there helping out his teammate?  The defensive back has spent a good portion of his offseason doing everything he can to help those that lost everything near his home due to a deadly tornado.

Even though Gilberry wasn’t a three down defensive player, he managed to finish second in sacks on the Chiefs while serving as the only other player capable of delivering constant pressure on the quarterback other than Tamba Hali.  Gilberry’s seven sacks were more than the next two players (Arenas, Andy Studebaker) combined.

Much like Hali, Gilberry will be helped by the addition of rookie Justin Houston’s pass rush ability on the outside.  The former undrafted free agent has earned more than the limited snaps he received last season and could easily see double digit sacks as team’s continue to focus their attention elsewhere.
