Broncos sign Casey Wiegmann to 2-year deal

A little bit of good news for Broncos fans.  The Broncos and center Casey Wiegmann have reportedly agreed to a 2-year contract.

Wiegmann, who was actually under contract for 2009, made his first Pro Bowl in 2008 after starting all 16 games for injured Tom Nalen.  After considering retirement, Wiegmann decided to come back, but voiced his desire for a new deal.

Wiegmann deserved the deal, and most importantly went about it in all the right ways.  Wiegmann was involved in every offseason workout with the team but one, an excused absence for a family function.

That, my friends, is how you handle your business.  The Broncos signed Wiegmann for the reasons I stated on MHR Radio last week.  It made football sense to bring him back at a bigger number. 

Congrats to Wiegmann for getting a well-deserved bump in pay while showing the younger guys how business inshandled in the National Football League!
