Grunhard: Waters Could Be Better Off As A Center

Quite a few folks have targeted the Kansas City Chiefs center as a possible position to upgrade heading into the offseason. For what it's worth, former Chiefs center Tim Grunhard thinks Waters could be a center for the Chiefs.

Waters actually played center first coming into Kansas City. Grunhard has a unique viewpoint on this because Waters was actually backing him up his first season with the Chiefs. He admits to Waters being "a good friend of mine" but says he hasn't played well for the last couple seasons.

"I think if he looks at himself he would honestly say the same thing," Grunhard said on The Program on 810 WHB. "He didn't play very good this year at the guard position. I don't know if that's because of the offense, the running or injuries."

Grunhard then said, considering the current state of the Chiefs roster, he would rather see Waters play center. He said Waters can play the position. In fact, Grunhard's first game as a fan in the stands at Arrowhead, Waters played center against the Raiders.

"I think he needs a shot of new blood, new life," Grunhard said. "And maybe that could be something because he's a leader. At the center position you can do a bunch of different things and hide the guy better than you could at the guard position."

Interesting take.

I know everyone's a GM right now but Grunhard's offensive line wishlist appears to go something like this: Draft LT (Okung), Albert at LG, Waters at C, Niswanger/someone else at RG, Draft/FA RT.
