Steve Gregory has announced his retirement.
Gregory, 31, signed with Kansas City last month, but no longer wants to continue his playing career. The ex-Chargers and Patriots safety had 357 tackles, seven interceptions, and three sacks over eight seasons. The Chiefs will move forward with Jerron McMillian and 2013 UDFA Malcolm Bronson as their backup safeties. Gregory is expected to pursue coaching opportunities. Aug 9 - 3:00 PM

Chiefs signed S Steve Gregory.

It's a sign the Chiefs don't expect Sanders Commings (ankle surgery) back soon. Gregory is a nice veteran insurance policy for one of the league's thinner secondaries. He started 11 games for the Patriots a season ago, racking up 79 tackles while grading out in the top 25 of Pro Football Focus' safety ratings. The Chiefs enter the season with Eric Berry, Husain Abdullah, third-rounder Phillip Gaines and Gregory as their top four safeties. Gaines could still end up at corner.
Jul 31 - 4:33 PM

ESPN's Todd Archer considers the Cowboys a possible landing spot for free agent S Steve Gregory.

The Cowboys currently have J.J. Wilcox, Jeff Heath and Matt Johnson as strong safety options, so Gregory could be a fit as a veteran to pair with FS Barry Church. Gregory started 11 games and made 79 tackles with the Patriots last season, grading out as a top-25 safety by Pro Football Focus. Dallas has only $6.42 million in cap space, but Gregory should be available for cheap.

Patriots released S Steve Gregory.

The move saves the Patriots $2.85 million against the cap. Gregory, 31, was entering the final year of a three-year deal and started 13 games, including the playoffs, last season. Pro Football Focus graded him out as a top-25 safety. The Patriots will now look for a safety to pair with FS Devin McCourty on the back end. 2013 third-rounder Duron Harmon is a candidate for the job.
Feb 28 - 1:12 PM

Patriots FS Steve Gregory (thumb) is expected to miss a few weeks.

Gregory broke his thumb during Sunday's Week 9 win over the Steelers. It's yet another significant blow to a defense that has already lost Vince Wilfork, Tommy Kelly and Jerod Mayo. Gregory was wearing the communication device in his helmet for the last two weeks as the defensive leader and has graded out 11th among 85 qualifiers in ProFootballFocus' safety grades. The Patriots will have to coach up third-round rookie Duron Harmon.

Patriots FS Steve Gregory (hip) practiced on a limited basis this week and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills.

Gregory, out since Week 4, was cleared to practice Wednesday. ESPN Boston considers Gregory more likely to play than SS Patrick Chung (shoulder, hamstring), who's also listed as questionable. DE Trevor Scott (hamstring) and LB Tracy White (foot) have been officially ruled out.

Patriots FS Steve Gregory (hip) and CB Kyle Arrington (concussion) have resumed practicing.

The Pats are putting in a full-pads practice, which suggests both players have been cleared for game action this week. With Aqib Talib returning from suspension in Week 11, New England is getting reinforcements for a beleaguered secondary.
Tue, Nov 6, 2012 02:40:00 PM

Patriots FS Steve Gregory (hip) has been ruled out for Week 5.

With Gregory out, rookie Tavon Wilson will make his first NFL start. Wilson has two interceptions and two fumble recoveries to go along with 11 total tackles in the first four games rotating with Chung and Gregory. Wilson has also played in three-safety sets as a hybrid linebacker in sub formations.
Sat, Oct 6, 2012 12:05:00 PM

ESPN Boston confirms Steve Gregory is the leading candidate for the Patriots' starting free safety job.

Other potential candidates include second-round FS Tavon Wilson, James Ihedigbo, and veteran CB Will Allen. Gregory figures to open training camp as the starter based on seniority, but will likely face heavy competition from Wilson, who's the superior talent.

Patriots signed S Steve Gregory to a three-year contract.

The Broncos and Panthers were also interested in the long-time Bolt, but he'll head to a team that sported one of the league's most dysfunctional secondaries in 2011. The Union-Tribune San Diego's Michael Gehlken reports Gregory will be New England's starting free safety after he played strong safety for the Chargers.
Thu, Mar 15, 2012 05:56:00 PM

Free agent SS Steve Gregory will visit the Patriots.

ESPN Boston reports the Broncos and Panthers have also "checked in" on Gregory. He had a rough age-28 campaign in 2011, but would still be an upgrade for a Pats team that was often making it up as it went along in the secondary last season.
Wed, Mar 14, 2012 11:39:00 AM

Free agent SS Steve Gregory has reportedly received interest from three teams about a visit.

The teams haven't been disclosed, but Gregory is reportedly viewed as a starter. The Chargers seem likely to lose Gregory after failing to commit to him as more than a reserve.
Wed, Mar 14, 2012 11:08:00 AM

Free agent SS Steve Gregory says he will test the open market this offseason in search of a starting job.

"I feel like I'm a legit starter in this league," said Gregory, who started 13 games this past season, but not by design. He was thrust into the lineup by Bob Sanders' year-ending injury. Unfortunately, Gregory may not be pleased by what he finds on the market. He graded 74th among 86 NFL safeties by Pro Football Focus this season, and caused just one turnover (a pick six).
Thu, Jan 5, 2012 12:51:00 PM

NFL Network's Alex Flanagan reports Chargers SS Steve Gregory (thigh) is inactive for Thursday night's game against the Raiders.

Gregory injured himself in Wednesday's practice. Pro Football Focus grades Gregory as slightly below average in coverage and against the run. Veteran Paul Oliver will fill in opposite Eric Weddle, with rookie Shareece Wright providing depth. Also inactive for the Bolts in Week 10: WR Malcom Floyd, OLB Shaun Phillips, WR Bryan Walters, OG Kris Dielman, DE Vaughn Martin, and LB Darryl Gamble.
Thu, Nov 10, 2011 07:13:00 PM

Chargers SS Steve Gregory has played every defensive snap in each of the last two games.

When Bob Sanders (knee) went down, the undersized Gregory was expected to be spelled at times by Paul Oliver. But the former undrafted free agent is holding his own and running with the job. He has ten tackles over the last two weeks.
