PostSubject: Wiegmann considering retirement   Tue Feb 08, 2011 10:32 pm


http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/s...e=NFLHeadlines

There is a chance the Kansas City Chiefs will need a new starting center in 2011. According to a source close to the situation, there is a 50-50 chance standout center Casey Wiegmann will retire.

The source said Wiegmann expects to inform the Chiefs by the draft of his future plans.

Wiegmann will turn 38 in July.

A former Kansas City standout from 2001-07, Wiegmann re-signed with the Chiefs last year after he was released by the Denver Broncos. Wiegmann beat out Rudy Niswanger for the starting job. Wiegmann extended his consecutive snap streak, which began in 2001, to beyond 10,000 in 2010.

If Wiegmann decided to play in 2011, he will surely be the Chiefs' starting center. Kansas City would miss Wiegmann. He and guards Brian Waters and Ryan Lilja gave the Chiefs a terrific tough, veteran presence in the interior of the line.

If Wiegmann doesn't return, Niswanger would likely be the top starting option. Regardless of whether Wiegmann returns, the Chiefs will likely consider drafting a young center.

I'm interested in seeing if someone like Asomoah gets moved there. Lilja is still pretty young, and I think Harris has the ability to be a starting guard also. Aso probably plays best at RG(I've never seen him play a snap at C but I think he practiced there some this year).. I thought he was pretty poor at LG though so Lilja could get moved there eventually if Harris doesn't get the job after Waters retires also.

I think the Chiefs are planning on getting a good C in the draft either way. there are a few this year. Wis, Odowd, and the kid from FSU. If Weig retires the kid gets thrown into the fire right away. If not the kid waits a year

I bet he comes back for one more year and helps the new guy out before calling it a career.

I could see him calling it quits... it would be pretty hard if Waters decides to go with him.

We have to find a new Center. Oakland, SD, Denver beat us like step childern because they were more physical up the gut. Weig was an upgrade but at 285 pounds he is not the answer. We have to find a guy in the 310 to 315 range who can play with these 330+ DTs.

More than 305 seems too big to me for a center in our offense... I think Pioli/Haley will try to find someone roughly around 6'3" 300.

I understand the zone blocking scheme. But when your being overpowered because of a lighter players inability, it looks like to me you would want to find someone who can play with a guy 330+. Even a guy around 300 is way to light to deal with those guys. Ideally 310 to 315 matches up with those guys. If they draft a guy in the 300 range i dont see this problem improving unless he is just a horse.

A center won't handle the NT alone.
