Remind me again where he played the last few years?

ST. JOSEPH — Branden Albert hadn’t heard the news about a former Chiefs teammate, Ryan Lilja. So when he was told after Thursday’s practice that Lilja had signed with the Denver Broncos, Albert’s first reaction was to drop an expletive.

The whole situation is actually pretty damn funny. It's to depressing to play for the Chiefs, no fun and no potential for success, so he retires. But when the Broncos call...it's too tempting to pass up. On a plane within 24 hours.

Guys when I was 14 I went to a fortune teller and she said I was going to grow up to be a star player for the Kansas City Chiefs so I decided to stop playing football.

Sounds better than a kick in the teeth. We'll soon see if he can get back into game shape before the season starts. I'm sure his conditioning is way behind what it should be considering he was in full retirement mode.

A few years. In other words, not since he last played with PFM.

Welcome aboard. Ramirez is NOT going to start over this guy.

Surprise, surprise. Broncos OL Ryan Lilja, who came out of retirement, underwent off-season micro fracture knee surgery.

I thought it was widely known already that he had surgery after the 2012 season. He waited until the end of the season to do the surgeries I thought.

Broncos look to Kuper for depth at center


rehab and a contract shave that could cost him roughly $3.5 million, but now he gets to handle a new position as well.

Given that they have one center (J.D. Walton) on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list, another already on injured reserve (Dan Koppen) and the current starter (Manny Ramirez) has never started a regular-season game at the position, the Broncos continue to look for reinforcements in-house.

urgery, Kuper will be asked to practice at center at times. He took some snaps in individual drills in Tuesday's practice, his first of this training camp.

"[That's] pretty much it ... I pretty much started today," Kuper said. "I've done it a little bit in the past, but nothing extensive."

Kuper said the last time he had played center in a game was during his junior season at North Dakota, when he moved from left tackle to center in a game for "three snaps.'' In Mike Shanahan's tenure as the Broncos' coach Kuper was a backup long snapper.

It will still take some time, however, before Kuper is fully integrated into practice as he works his way back to full strength. He has dealt with a variety of issues with his left ankle since suffering a fracture and dislocation in the 2011 regular-season finale.

He played in seven games last season, starting five, but had additional surgery following the season as well as treatments for an infection in the joint, and so he was held out of the offseason program and the early portion of this training camp.

"Not there yet," Kuper said. " ... I'm not going to put a time frame on it just because coming back from this thing before and it didn't work out the way I wanted it to."

As far as Kuper's future at center, Broncos coach John Fox said: "We'll look at it. Guys have that flexibility."

"We've all talked about doing it," Kuper said. "And [it's] something I need to work on."

Yeah, backend players that just wanted a ring.

Derek Loville and Tim Mycker for two. Who was the LB that started against Denver for the packers in 1997 and then was on the '98 team? Was it the guy Easy Ed smaked down in the SB?

No, it was Seth Joyner. Also formerly of the great Reggie White led Eagles defenses.
