I. Like. This. Move.
Come home, Casey.
Jake Gutierrez of 810 Sports has Tweeted the following:
The Chiefs contacted OL Casey Wiegmann this morning.
Let me run through all the reasons I like this move. Casey is a bad ass and made the Pro Bowl 2 years ago. he has started 127 games in a row, which is the longest active streak among active centers.
My concern is that he will be 37 in July. If the Chiefs are going to bring in Casey they need to have a backup plan and they have to put a younger, talented guard to his right to help take some of the pressure off of him. If they can do that and Casey thinks he has one more year in him I think the Chiefs should look at making the move. He will likely come cheap and could mentor a young center.
The last plus here is that Casey has played with Brian Waters and it likely wouldn’t take long for some of that old chemistry to come back.
I am not saying I want the Chiefs to plug all of their holes with old veterans but I also realize that they can’t plug all of their holes with young, talented rookies and expect to win very many games. The Chiefs need a mix of young talent and veteran leadership. I would love for Casey Wiegmann to come home.
