Tuesday is workout day around the NFL and the Chiefs on Tuesday had former Dallas center Andre Gurode in for a session.
Whether the continuing search for a snapper is just the team doing due diligence, or if there are concerns on the physical health of Ryan Lilja we don’t know for sure. But last week they worked out C/G Russ Hochstein and signed him.
Gurode, 6-4 and 334 pounds, came into the league as a 2nd-round selection of the Dallas Cowboys in the 2002 NFL Draft. He came out of the University of Colorado, where he was a first-team All-Big 12 selection in 2000-01, earning consensus All-America status. He spent nine seasons playing for the Cowboys, starting games at center and right guard. The Houston native earned 5 trips to the Pro Bowl.
He spent the 2011 season with the Baltimore Ravens. At this point in his career, Gurode has played in 151 games with 127 starts.
