Report: Jon Runyan in Kansas City for a Workout with the Chiefs

Jon-runyan_mediumCiting a source, word comes from Brad Biggs of the National Football Post that the Kansas City Chiefs are hosting veteran tackle Jon Runyan for a visit. 

As of 3:44 PM (CST), Biggs reports, "A league source said that the veteran offensive tackle is in Kansas City right now for a workout."

Interesting.  The Chiefs just signed off the waiver wire a young, relatively unproven tackle from the New England PatriotsRyan O'Callaghan was expected to compete with another newcomer, Ikechuku Ndukwe, for the starting right tackle job.

Around noon today, Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reported that Runyan has been cleared to play following offseason microfracture surgery to repair an injured knee.  There are, according to PFT, three teams interested in his services.

The Chiefs, apparently, are one of them.

He did decline a contract offer from a team he didn't want to play for.  PFT (jokingly?) assumes it was the Oakland Raiders.

He's no young guy, at least in NFL standards, either.  He was on the Houston Oilers, before they became the Tennessee Titans.  A 1996 fourth round draft choice, he will turn 36 this season but has started every game dating back to 1997.  Injuries or not, he's stayed on the field.

So, it looks like the Chiefs brass wrapped up the Kickoff Luncheon and went right back to work.
