The Chiefs have reportedly agreed to contract terms with Frank Zombo, an outside linebacker who played the past three seasons with the Green Bay Packers.

Zombo would be a backup for starters Tamba Hali and Justin Houston.

Zombo started eight games as a rookie in 2010 and had four sacks. He played in just 12 games over the past two seasons because of injuries. He missed the first half of last season because of a hamstring injury.

On Monday, the Chiefs released backup linebacker Andy Studebaker, who'd played primarily on special teams in several seasons in Kansas City.
