Broncos lure Lilja out of retirement

As unretired centers go, Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning may have preferred Jeff Saturday. But with the center position in shambles and Manning presumably interested in not having whatever warm body installed at the position thrown into the quarterback’s knees, he’ll likely settle for Ryan Lilja.
The Broncos have announced that Lilja has agreed to terms with the team.
Lilja, 31, has played for the Colts and Chiefs. In Indy, Lilja was a guard in the line of scrimmage that protected Peyton.
Hopefully, Lilja’s presence will ensure that the Broncos won’t have any problems in protection.
