NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

Former Saints Guard Ben Grubbs is reportedly set to retire because of a neck injury. 

Grubbs suffered the injury last October. It kept him out of the Kansas City Chief's final 11-games, including their two playoff games.

Grubbs signed a 4-year, $32-million deal with the Chiefs last season after being acquired from the Saints in exchange for a 5th-round pick.

The 32-year old Grubbs spent three seasons in black and gold.
