Titans released LB Andy Studebaker and waived C/G Gabe Ikard.

Veteran special teamers like Studebaker need to be really good at their jobs because teams can find players to cover kicks for the bare-bones minimum.
Fri, Sep 4, 2015 11:20:00 AM

Colts LB Andy Studebaker was forced from Saturday's Divisional Round game against the Patriots with a neck injury.

A standout special teamer, Studebaker was injured on a punt near the end of the second quarter. His return is questionable.

Colts signed LB Andy Studebaker.

A standout special teamer, Studebaker made 45 tackles on that unit for the Chiefs between 2008-12.
Wed, Oct 9, 2013 09:10:00 AM

Jaguars signed LB Andy Studebaker.

A special teamer, Studebaker appeared in all 16 games for the Chiefs each of the past four seasons. He'll fight for one of the Jags' many open roster spots.

Chiefs released LB Andy Studebaker.

A veteran special teamer, Studebaker notched eight tackles last season. Studebaker has contributed on defense in the past, but saw just 56 snaps at linebacker in 2012. That made his $2.055 million salary untenable. Studebaker could eventually re-sign with Kansas City at a lower price.

Andy Studebaker is expected to have the "inside track" on the Chiefs' starting outside linebacker job opposite Tamba Hali this season.

Studebaker has been Mike Vrabel's understudy for the past two seasons, but overtook Vrabel on passing downs for much of last year and had 2.5 sacks. Studebaker is now the heavy favorite for early-down work. He'll be pushed by Cam Sheffield and third-round pick Justin Houston for the nickel rushing role.

The Kansas City Star suggests that Andy Studebaker will only be used to "keep the seat warm" for rookie Justin Houston at outside linebacker.

There's no question that Houston has more upside as an explosive edge rusher. The Chiefs value Studebaker's versatility, however, and he's been in the system, while Houston won't benefit from the lockout. Houston may enter the year as a situational rusher, and replace Studebaker on the first team around midseason.
Thu, May 12, 2011 09:53:00 AM

The Kansas City Star confirms that Andy Studebaker is expected to slide in for Mike Vrabel at outside linebacker.

Vrabel is declining badly at age 36 and is coming off an arrest for felony theft. The Chiefs have been grooming Studebaker to handle nickel rushing duties and the time for a change could be now. Even if Vrabel does play one more year, the Chiefs need to at least get Studebaker experience via a timeshare.
Mon, Apr 18, 2011 10:21:00 AM

The Chiefs have been grooming OLB Andy Studebaker to take over for nickel rusher Mike Vrabel.

Vrabel is an impending free agent and will be 36 in August. After working behind Vrabel for two seasons, now is likely the time to make the move. The Chiefs could also look to add talent to the position in an effort to keep attention off Tamba Hali.
Mon, Jan 31, 2011 11:14:00 AM

The Chiefs have reportedly agreed to terms on a contract extension for OLB Andy Studebaker.

Studebaker, a product of D-III Wheaton College, had been under contract through 2010 at $470,000. He's a key special teamer and Mike Vrabel's heir apparent to the situational pass rusher role for the Chiefs.
Tue, Sep 14, 2010 02:56:00 PM

Andy Studebaker "appears to be solidifying himself" as the Chiefs' long-term replacement for OLB Mike Vrabel.

Vrabel, 35 and in a contract year, has kicked inside with Studebaker starting outside in some nickel packages. Studebaker figures to enter the season as the Chiefs' primary nickel rusher. He does need to polish his cover skills.
Wed, Aug 18, 2010 12:54:00 AM

Chiefs re-signed exclusive rights free agent OLB Andy Studebaker.

He'll collect $470,000. Studebaker flashed in late-season chances last year, picking off two passes, forcing a fumble, and making 26 tackles in the final eight games. While he probably won't earn the first-team job opposite Tamba Hali, Studebaker has shown enough to be viewed as a capable spot starter.

Chiefs LB Andy Studebaker will make his first career NFL start on Sunday against the Steelers.

Studebaker will start at OLB in place of the injured Mike Vrabel (knee). The Chiefs signed him off the Eagles practice squad last November after the Eagles drafted him in the sixth round out of D-III Wheaton College in 2008.
