The Denver Broncos' search for a starting center is starting to feel like a rejected "Final Destination" screenplay.
Lilja hardly is a perfect fit. He played guard, not center, during his time with Manning and the Colts. There also are physical question marks; Lilja underwent surgery on his toe and knee after starting 15 games for the Kansas City Chiefs last season. Still, Lilja might be a better option than Manny Ramirez, the guard who is currently acting as Denver's center.
Lilja had been in talks to come out of retirement and return to the Chiefs this spring. A phone call from his old buddy Peyton might get him over the hump.
