The Indianapolis Colts are releasing long-time starting center and offensive lineman Samson Satele.

Satele was originally drafted in the second round of the 2007 NFL Draft by the Miami Dolphins before heading to the Oakland Raiders in 2009. In 2012, Satele signed a contract with the Colts and has played there the past two years, replacing center Jeff Saturday.
Satele could really fit the Chiefs scheme and could be a big help to not only push incumbent starting center Rodney Hudson, but he can also play guard which the Chiefs are desparately in need of.
Satele has only missed 10 games in his seven-year career and as far as I can tell, none of those misses were related to serious injuries. He’s been on the offensive line that has put up some pretty significant numbers, including Darren McFadden rushing for over 1,100 yards.
Satele to the Chiefs would make a lot of sense if the price was right. Having a player that can play the interior line — including his natrual position of center — would be invaluable as the team gets ready to evaluate other off season moves.
What do you think, Addicts? Should the Chiefs take a look at Satele or pass?
