Chiefs Showing Interest In Free Agent Centers

The lone offensive lineman for the Kansas City Chiefs to start every game last season was center Rudy Niswanger. While his effort is noted, the center position is one that comes up often when talking about upgrading the offensive line.

Just this afternoon, 810 WHB's Jake Gutierrez reported that the Chiefs called up former center Casey Wiegmann. We're not sure where the Chiefs stand with that as of now.

As it turns out, the Chiefs are showing interest in another center.

Ralph Cindrich, agent for free agent center Hank Fraley, has said the Chiefs are showing interest in his client.

(Side note: And since Fraley's camp went public with the Chiefs interest it probably means he won't sign.)

Cindrich said Fraley is in Missouri visiting -- but it's St. Louis, not Kansas City. He also said the Chiefs signing another offensive lineman would not change their interest.

Fraley, 32, spent the first five active seasons in the NFL with the Eagles. In 2006, he was traded to the Browns, who were coached by Romeo Crennel at the time so there's your Chiefs connection.

His release from the Browns doesn't necessarily mean he's lost it. The Browns spent a first round pick on Alex Mack last April and need to get him on the field.

Fraley has been noted for his "blue collar work ethic" and his ability to call the plays for the offensive line. He also can play some guard. He appears to fit the "right 53" mold.
