The KC Chiefs continue tweaking their roster as the 2013 NFL Draft nears. Earlier on Wednesday it was the reported signing of offensive lineman Tommie Draheim, who had connections to the Green Bay Packers. Now there's this:
Chiefs are signing former Packer Frank Zombo, who reunited with KC GM John Dorsey.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) April 3, 2013
Just confirmed. OLB Frank Zombo heading to the Kansas City Chiefs.— Tyler Dunne (@TyDunne) April 3, 2013
Two new players in one day. The Chiefs are staying busy.
Like 2013 NFL Draft prospect Eric Fisher, Zombo comes from Central Michigan. He was picked up by Green Bay after the 2010 NFL Draft, made the 53-man roster (which is impressive enough) and even started eight games and four sacks on the season. In the following two years, Zombo had just one start due to injuries and competition. He did start in the Super Bowl (a game I attended #humblebrag), which is pretty cool.

The Packers did not tender him as a restricted free agent, which is interesting given Dorsey's background with the Packers.
Been all injuries for Zombo since rookie year. In '11, broken scapula, hyperextended knee, strained hamstring. Then the hammy again in '12.— Tyler Dunne (@TyDunne) April 3, 2013

So @bkissel7 we at least got a LB from GB right? I'm expecting a Frank Zombo breakdown now— Mark Lindberg (@MarkJL07) April 3, 2013
If Zombo can stay healthy he could help fill the role that Studebaker had.— NFL Guru (@ChiefsBeef) April 3, 2013
Zombo is, when healthy, a marginal pass rusher at best. Past couple seasons, he couldn't stay healthy.Don't expect much. #Chiefs— Craig Stout (@KaloPhoenix) April 3, 2013
Zombo has had injury issues throughout his three year career. He's an OLB who likely will be a special teamer.— NFL Guru (@ChiefsBeef) April 3, 2013
