NFL  > Kansas City Chiefs  > Ryan Lilja

Lilja signed with the Chiefs today. The KC Star is reporting that its a three year deal for an undisclosed monetary amount. Lilja is 28, going on 29 and has missed a couple of seasons due to injury. Colts fans - what do you know about him now? Is he healthy enough to be a leader on the interior or is he too banged up to be an every down guy?

Also, this comes on the heals of Casey Wiegmann returning to KC. Lilja is only 6'2, 290 and Wiegmann is 37 years old, standing at 6'2 285. These two linemen are built for pass blocking. The Chiefs still have not resigned the incumbant starting center Rudy Neiswanger, so Wiegmann could still be in contention for the starting spot. I love the fact that they are adding to their line and think that this gives the Chiefs options draft day. I think if the Safety, Eric Berry from Tennessee is available at pick number 5, that they will take him and draft a Right Tackle and nose tackle in round 2.
