The Kansas City Chiefs issues at center are well known. Starter Rodney Hudson is out for the year, which caused Ryan Lilja to move to center, Jeff Allen to move to starting guard and the Chiefs signing two reserve offensive linemen in Russ Hochstein and Bryan Mattison.

According to Aaron Wilson, there's more movement on the center front.

Perhaps best known as the guy who had his head stomped by Albert Haynesworth and needed 30 stitches, Gurode is a 2002 second round pick who started for the Cowboys for nine years, and landed in Baltimore for the 2011 season at guard. He does have some experience at guard in addition to center. He recently worked out for the Lions.

I'd be interested to hear why the Chiefs want to bring someone else in. Is it because Lilja is struggling at center and they need a replacement there? Or is it because Allen is struggling at guard and they want Lilja back in that spot?

The Chiefs recently signed linebacker Bryan Kehl, according to reports. That means they need to cut someone to make room for him. And if they want to sign Gurode, they'd need to cut another player.
