Report: Ryan Lilja has drawn interest from Denver Broncos

The Broncos center trouble has caused them to reach out to Ryan Lilja who at last check was retired, according to reports.


A lil' Ryan Lilja news anyone?

The former KC Chiefs offensive lineman, who announced his retirement at the end of last season, has reportedly drawn interest from the Denver Broncos. This according to Alex Marvez of

The most important part here, whether Lilja is receptive to the idea of playing for the Broncos, is something we don't yet know.

There is a little history here with Lilja since he announced his retirement to little fanfare following the Chiefs final game of the season. A few months later, in April, the KC Star's Adam Teicher reported that the Chiefs did reach out to Lilja and that he was 'receptive' to the idea of returning.

The Broncos of course have a need at center. Besides reserve linemen going down, they lost center Dan Koppen to a torn ACL.

See the Denver reaction to this news at Mile High Report. There's even a poll, asking if you want the Broncos to sign Lilja. You know, just in case you want to vote.
