KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Keary Colbert is making the most of his
second chance at life in the NFL.

The former second-round draft pick of the Carolina Panthers has
been out of the league the last two years, embarking on a second
career as an assistant coach at Southern Cal.

But the itch to play never went away, and Colbert started
working out in January with an eye toward a comeback. His agent
taped his workouts, the video ended up in the hands of the Kansas
City Chiefs, and Colbert was brought into training camp in August.

The wide receiver was a longshot to make the roster, but
survived every round of cuts, and now Colbert finds himself on an
NFL roster once again.

Says Colbert: "I'm just thankful and grateful to be here."
