Chiefs Sign Center Ghiaciuc

The Kansas City Chiefs have signed free agent center Eric Ghiaciuc, the team announced on Thursday. Ghiaciuc (6-4, 303) has appeared in 48 games (42 starts) during his four-year career with Cincinnati (2005-08). He originally entered the NFL as a fourth-round choice (119th overall) of Cincinnati in the 2005 NFL Draft.

The Oxford, Michigan native started his final 35 games at Central Michigan, blocking for a 1,000-yard rusher each of his last three seasons. Ghiaciuc earned all-state honors in football and won the state championship in wrestling at Oxford High School.

Ghiaciuc should get a chance to compete for the center job against incumbent starter Rudy Niswanger, who recently signed his one-year restricted free agent tender. Top Stories
