Veteran Center Casey Wiegmann Not Retiring

Veteran center Casey Wiegmann had been considering retirement. Earlier this offseason, his agent said the free-agent center was “50-50” to return in 2011. However, agent Joe Linta said Wiegmann has decided he wants to play this year if a contract can be worked out with the Chiefs according to Bill Williamsson of ESPN.com.

Linta said Wiegmann, who will turn 38 Wednesday, is in the best shape he’s been in years. He will be entering his 16th NFL season.

Wiegmann is one of the veterans who may have benefited from the lockout. Had Wiegmann had to go through an extensive offseason workout program, he could have decided to retire.
