Kansas City Chiefs President Carl Peterson announced on Saturday that the club has agreed to terms of a two-year contract with QB David Greene, adding him to the club’s 53-man roster from the practice squad. Per Chiefs policy, no other terms of the agreement were made available.
Greene (6-3, 226) originally joined the Chiefs as a member of the practice squad on December 6th. He entered the NFL as the first of Seattle’s two third-round picks (85th overall) in the 2005 NFL Draft and served as the club’s third quarterback for 16 regular season contests and three postseason games, including Super Bowl XL. He was inactive for 12 games in 2006 as the Seahawks third quarterback and saw duty as the Seattle’s back-up quarterback for four contests. Greene attended training camp with the Seahawks in 2007, but was released prior to the start of the regular season. He joined New England’s practice squad on September 19th before being released on November 20th.
Greene started an NCAA-record 52 consecutive games at the University of Georgia, becoming the winningest quarterback in NCAA Division I history with 42 career victories, surpassing QB Peyton Manning’s record of 39. He prepped at South Gwinnett High School in Snellville, Georgia.
