Free agent C Casey Wiegmann visited the Chiefs this week.
We suspected the Chiefs would take a look at the veteran. Wiegmman, 39, unofficially retired back in June, largely because the Chiefs were ready to move forward with Rodney Hudson. Now that Hudson is out for the season, it makes sense to revisit Wiegmann. For now, Ryan Lilja is manning center with Jeff Allen taking over at left guard. Fri, Sep 28, 2012 10:31:00 AM

Free agent C Casey Wiegmann has "unofficially retired."

Wiegmann hasn't submitted his papers yet, but he's moving on. He'll be 39 next month and the Chiefs have implanted second-year man Rodney Hudson at center. Wiegmann's career ends with an impressive streak of 175 consecutive starts.

Free agent C Casey Wiegmann is "likely" to retire, according to KCChiefs.com.

Wiegmann, working on a streak of 11,102 consecutive snaps, turns 39 years old in July. Last year's second-rounder, Rodney Hudson, spent the season in the locker next door, picking up tips from Wiegmann. Expected to man the pivot in 2012, the athletic Hudson should be an upgrade in the running game.

Chiefs C Casey Wiegmann is undecided about playing a 17th NFL season in 2012.

Set to reach free agency again, Wiegmann will turn 39 before the start of the 2012 season. He's made 175 straight starts while playing 11,102 consecutive snaps. The Chiefs have 2011 second-rounder Rodney Hudson waiting in the wings.

Chiefs agreed to terms with C Casey Wiegmann on a one-year contract.

Two other clubs showed interest, but Wiegmann was only going to play if the Chiefs wanted him back. His return should keep second-round pick Rodney Hudson, a college guard the club is converting to center, on the bench for his rookie season. Wiegmann stabilizes a Chiefs offensive line that returns all five starters. He's likely to man the pivot spot in Week 1.

The player rep for free agent C Casey Wiegmann says his client has decided to play another NFL season, as long as the Chiefs will have him back.

The agent says Wiegmann is in the "best shape of his career," and intends to play only in Kansas City. Coach Todd Haley has said he wants Wiegmann to return, but the Chiefs drafted Rodney Hudson in the second round and also have Brian Waters capable of playing center, if Jon Asamoah takes over as a starting guard. Wiegmann, 38, was Pro Football Focus' 15th-ranked center last year.

Free agent C Casey Wiegmann told 810 Kansas City recently that his plans for the 2011 season remain up in the air.

Wiegmann, who turns 38 next month, is participating in Chiefs players-only workouts. "I haven't made any decision," he insisted. "... I'm just training and being ready in case anything happens. I can retire if I want to retire. I can play if I want to play." The Chiefs could move Brian Waters to center if Wiegmann retires. They also drafted Rodney Hudson in the second round.

Free agent C Casey Wiegmann is participating in players-only workouts with the Chiefs this week.

Wiegmann entered the offseason contemplating retirement. Soon to be 38, the 14-year veteran hasn't publicly stated that he'll return to Kansas City, but his presence at the workouts is a pretty good indication that he'll play one more season.
Thu, Jun 16, 2011 05:12:00 PM

Coach Todd Haley remains hopeful that Chiefs C Casey Wiegmann will opt to play at least one more season.

Wiegmann, who turns 38 in July, has been contemplating retirement. The lockout has not helped the Chiefs' chances, but perhaps Wiegmann will be re-energized by the draft's talent infusion. Kansas City should be a legit contender again in the West. If Wiegmann walks away, second-rounder Rodney Hudson would step in.

According to ESPN.com's Bill Williamson, there is a "50-50 chance" than Chiefs C Casey Wiegmann will retire this offseason.

He's expected to notify the Chiefs of his plans by the NFL Draft. Wiegmann, who turns 38 in July, extended his consecutive snap streak to over 10,000 during the 2010 season. Jamaal Charles owners should be hoping Wiegmann sticks around for another year. Backup Rudy Niswanger is a marked downgrade.

Chiefs C Casey Wiegmann has started 158 straight games consisting of 10,069 consecutive snaps.

We all know that Brett Favre holds the consecutive games record, but it's believed that Wiegmann's snaps streak is likely the longest ever. Of course, there are no statistics on that, so it's a mythical title. The 37-year-old will be resistant to resting in the second half of Sunday's regular-season finale.

Casey Wiegmann has been chosen as the Chiefs' starting center over incumbent Rudy Niswanger.

The 37-year-old returned to the Chiefs this offseason after spending two years in Denver. Niswanger has trouble with bigger nose tackles and too often struggles with bad snaps, so it's not a surprise that the Chiefs decided to go with the veteran.
Tue, Sep 7, 2010 09:35:00 AM

Chiefs signed C Casey Wiegmann to a one-year, $2 million contract.

Smartly upgrading their interior line, the Chiefs have also set up a Monday visit for free agent Ryan Lilja. Wiegmann is going on 37 now, but can provide depth behind incumbent Rudy Niswanger, who was rewarded a second-round restricted free agent tender. Wiegmann doesn't seem likely to start.

Free agent C Casey Wiegmann left his visit to Washington without a contract Saturday.

The Redskins just re-signed center Casey Rabach, so Wiegmann would have to play guard if Mike Shanahan is interested in a reunion. The team has hosted four offensive linemen in the past two days, yet none have signed.

The Redskins will host free agent C Casey Wiegmann on Thursday.

Though Wiegmann turns 37 in July and only maybe has a year or two left in the tank, this fit makes sense because of his history with new Redskins coach Mike Shanahan, and the needy state of Washington's offensive line.
