NFL Roster Cuts: In The End, Chiefs Keep Both Niswanger And Wiegmann

After many comments and plenty of debate, the position battle between Rudy Niswanger and Casey Wiegmann is complete.

And we still don't know who won.

The Kansas City Chiefs kept both centers on the roster but we've yet to determine who will be the starter.

It was a classic training camp battle with the younger guy, Niswanger, going up against the crafty veteran, Casey Wiegmann.

The Chiefs seem to value hard workers and smart players like Niswanger, which is why they kept him. They also value the veteran presence and experience of guys like Wiegmann.

We're still not sure who exactly is going to be the starter entering the season. Niswanger has taken far and away the most first team snaps and has been listed under the first team on every unofficial team-issued depth chart.

The Chiefs only kept three guards on the active roster meaning it's possible Niswanger could be called in a reserve. He practiced some at guard during training camp so that's definitely an option and likely one of the reasons the Chiefs could afford to keep two centers on the roster.

The answer to the starter question would seemingly be Niswanger with as many first team snaps as he took but because of Wiegmann's experience we know he doesn't need that many training camp snaps to prepare for the season.

Your take on keeping two centers?
