Report: Casey Wiegmann Visits Chiefs


Casey Wiegmann may not be retired for long.

The former Chiefs center, who decided to hang them up last offseason, reportedly visited the Chiefs last week in the wake of Rodney Hudson’s season-ending injury.

Here is the news, from Adam Caplan:

It makes sense. I am guessing Wiegman was the first person Scott Pioli called when he heard Hudson was done for. Right now the plan is to start guard Ryan Lilja at center and rookie Jeff Allen at guard.

Weigmann certainly isn’t the player he used to be, but if he is in shape or can get in shape, he could still help the Chiefs. He is an experienced veteran and he knows the zone blocking scheme in and out.

But is Wiegmann in shape?

The fact that he came in for a visit means Casey is at least toying with the idea for coming back for one last season. The Chiefs didn’t sign him last week but they may want to see how the Lilja/Allen due perform this week before making any decisions. My guess is they told Wiegmann to start working out and that they’d be in touch.

Here is what Romeo Crennel had to say about Wiegmann being in KC:

“He came by to say hi. He wanted to check on me. He heard that I was down in the dumps and he wanted to lift my spirits a little bit (laughing). So he came by to say hi.

“With our situation, we have to investigate everything, so we did talk to him about how he was doing. He talked to us about how we were doing and that’s where we left it.”

What do you think, Addicts? Would you like to see Wiegmann back in action for the Chiefs? He won’t turn 40 until January 20th, after the Chiefs win the Super Bowl. ;)

    The Super Bowl is in February

      Aww does that mean we wont go to Super Bowl

      • KCMikeG

        No it just means Wigs would be 40 which in NFL years is like a 100 I think.

  • Calchiefsfan

    Sign him and let’s start talking to Waters too. Both are way better than the two we just signed.

  • Calchiefsfan

    Seriously, Weigmann is one of the toughest guys to ever play the game. He would be a great addition even at 39. I didn’t want him to retire so we would have insurance against something like this happening.

  • Michael Shaw

    I love the idea of weigmann, but i am not sure I agree with the idea of bringing back Waters considering how he left us for NE. Besides i think he is waiting for a texas team to call him.

      whats the story behind that ? [brian waters]

  • Jim Harper

    If Casey is in shape, and if he really wants to come back then he is without question the best short term solution to the center position. Although he has never worked with Daboll before he brings so much experience and knowledge that his age becomes a moot point. This is the first I have heard about Waters though, but I would be totally against his return. His attitude has been in the toilet ever since Pioli showed up, but I am sure we have moved on and he is not even a consideration. I must admit I like the Lilja/Allen combo alot if Casey does not come back

  • micah stephenson

    Nooooo! He was part of the problem not the solution. Get a 310 lb plus center Not a 275 40yrd old weakling!

    I think it’s to late for Casey to make a impact on the team,unless he’s in super great shape. Don’t think so after all the years in his position. he retired for a reason. I love Casey for what he has done for the Chiefs but are we trying to survive or get to the playoffs? Bring in a top QB and his center and the Chiefs will be fine. They should of spent the money for Drew Bress come on Cassel will not be perductive
