Former Syracuse University football defensive safety and San Diego Charger Steve Gregory is once again returning to the East Coast. Gregory just signed a 3 year contract with the New England Patriots after meeting with the team last week.

WIBX is reporting that the new deal could average between $2-3 million dollars per season. Not too bad right? I wish I could make that!

Gregory was signed as a rookie free agent for the San Diego Chargers in 2006 after graduating from SU. He has appeared in 85 games during his career with the Chargers, and last season intercepted a pass by Buffalo Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick and returned the pass for a 26-yard touchdown.”
