KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -Safety Jerome Woods signed a one-year contract on Thursday that will enable him to retire as a Chief.
Woods, who was a first-round draft pick of the Chiefs in 1996, will move to the reserve-retired list on Friday. He played in Kansas City his whole career until his release in May 2006.
``Jerome Woods played his entire career with the Chiefs, a rare occasion in today's NFL,'' Chiefs president Carl Peterson said. ``He was an excellent first-round draft choice who distinguished himself on and off the field. He was a Pro Bowl player who helped us win many football games over his time here.''
Woods played in 128 games in 10 seasons and was credited with 720 tackles, five sacks and 15 interceptions.
He made a comeback in 2003 and was named to the Pro Bowl after missing the 2002 season with a broken leg.
