Per FanSided’s Matt Verderame, the Kansas City Chiefs reportedly want to bring back offensive lineman Stefen Wisniewski.
The Kansas City Chiefs are reportedly interested in bringing back veteran offensive lineman Stefen Wisniewski, per FanSided’s NFL editor Matt Verderame.
Reporting from the NFL Combine in Indianapolis, Verderame says the Chiefs have already set up a meeting to chat with his representatives to hopefully work something out to ensure his return in 2020 after taking over the starting left guard role in 2019.
#Chiefs have interest in bringing back guard Stefen Wisniewski, per source. Meeting set up late this week to discuss potential return.
If he hits the market, league conversations indicate #Jets would be a potential suitor. Wiz played in PHI when Joe Douglas was there.

Wisniewski first joined the Chiefs in early October after the team saw a frightening tandem on the left side of the line. Eric Fisher was already out for weeks when Andrew Wylie went down in a loss to the Indianapolis Colts. For much of the game, Cam Erving and Ryan Hunter served as a starting tackle and guard on the left side, respectively. After the game, Hunter was released and Wisniewski was signed.
Wisniewski played in 11 games for the Chiefs and eventually took over the starting role near season’s end. He started only twice in the regular season but more in the playoffs as well while Wylie became a healthy scratch.
Wisniewski, who turns 31 next month, has now won two Super Bowls in his career after also hoisting the Lombardi with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2017. He’s played in 134 games in his career which includes several seasons with the Oakland Raiders and a single year with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
