Safety Steven Gregory, announced his retirement on Saturday.

Gregory spent 8 seasons in the NFL, 2 with the New England Patriots.

He was an undrafted free agent before signing with the San Diego Chargers in 2006.

He signed with the Kansas City Chiefs this summer, but says the birth of his daughter this off-season gave him a new perspective on life.

He plans to pursue coaching.

Below is the full statement by Gregory, via his agent David Canter:

“It is with tremendous respect, appreciation, and admiration for the game of football that I’ve decided to announce my retirement effective immediately. After entering the game as an undrafted free agent, I was fortunate enough to play twice as long as the average player. This past offseason, my wife Rosanne and I were blessed to welcome a daughter, Aviana, and spending time with here has changed my life’s perspective. It is my hope to continue in football as a coach and I look forward to what the future holds. I’m tremendously happy with my decision and being able to walk away from this great game both healthy and on my own terms. I would be remiss in announcing my retirement without thanking my great family, coaches, teammates, scouts, trainers, agent and all of the fans that have supported me along the way.

Thank you,
Steve Gregory
