Andy Studebaker alert! The Kansas City Chiefs are working out pass rushers with Justin Houston injured and potentially missing time and one of those players is former Chief Andy Studebaker.
#Chiefs worked out OLBs Andy Studebaker and Thomas Keiser.— Adam Caplan (@caplannfl) December 1, 2015
Studie was a fan favorite during his time in Kansas City, which spanned two regimes. He first arrived under Herm Edwards and Carl Peterson in 2008 and stuck around during the transition to Scott Pioli. His best moment was probably on Halloween a few years ago recovering The Phumble, the inexplicable Philip Rivers fumble.
He has spent time with the Jaguars, Colts and Titans since the leaving the Chiefs. He would provide a veteran presence at linebacker if Houston can't go. I wouldn't expect him to be a major contributor at linebacker -- that probably goes to Frank Zombo and / or Dezman Moses -- but he has experience in the league. I also wonder if he is still a solid special teamer.
And it doesn't hurt that I believe he still lives in Kansas City. Short commute to Arrowhead.
