Former Kansas City Chief Ryan Lilja is “un-retiring”, but not to come back to the Chiefs. Reports are that Lilja has agreed to come out of retirement and play for the Denver Broncos. Lilja was a long time teammate of Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning when they were both in Indianapolis. Lilja will assumably play center for the Broncos after their projected starter Dan Koppen was lost for the season due to injury. It is reportedly a one year deal.
So what do you think Addicts?
Are you upset that Lilja would come back for Manning but not for the Chiefs?
Lilja always seemed like a good guy, but he wasn’t exactly a Pro Bowl caliber player last year.
I remember watching Dontari Poe completely truck Lilja in a one on one drill last year at training camp. Let’s hope he can do that a few times when they go head to head this season.
