In an offseason full of uncertainty, it seems the Kansas City Chiefs have returned one of the most certain things in the NFL over the last 15 years. Center Casey Wiegmann has agreed to terms with the Chiefs on a one-year deal.
Two other NFL teams made inquiries about the center.
Wiegmann hasn’t missed a snap since 2001, playing over 10,000 consecutive snaps.
The Chiefs did draft Florida State center Rodney Hudson, an All-Atlantic Coast Conference selection, in the second round in April.
After losing Mike Vrabel to the Ohio State Buckeyes, keeping Wiegmann around was key to helping the Chiefs stay on track as they look to defend their division title. The team took a lot of huge steps last season, but they are still very young and need as much veteran leadership as they can get.
There’s little doubt Wiegmann will return to his spot as the Chiefs starting center while starts mentoring Hudson and continues being a great example for second-year guard Jon Asamoah.
