The Chiefs have 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.

The Chiefs on Wednesday also signed offensive lineman Tommie Draheim. The 6-foot-4, 309-pound Draheim was with the Packers last season during training camp as an undrafted free agent.

After being released by the Packers, Draheim spent time during the regular season on the practice squad with Seattle, New England and Jacksonville. He played in college at San Diego State.

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