    Financial terms were not disclosed.

    An undrafted free agent last season, Tucker played in six games and recorded 12 tackles and 3 1/2 sacks. Tucker was named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week following a three-sack effort in the 2007 season-finale at Oakland.

    Gregory, also an undrafted free agent, is entering his third season. The 5-11 safety has made 23 tackles, including 12 last season, over his first two campaigns.

    "Both Jyles and Steve did it the hard way," Chargers general manager A.J. Smith. "They came to us as undrafted free agents, spent some time on the practive squad and earned their way on to the 53-man roster by working extremely hard."
