Mike Munchak was on the Wake-Up Zone here in Nashville this morning, and they asked him if he was comfortable with Eugene Amano playing center this year. Here is what he had to say (via SportsRadioInterviews.com):

"No, we would. I think it’s just competition. We’ve been looking (at) a lot of positions, offensive line being one of them. The (Steve) Hutchinson thing became available — he wasn’t even a free agent when the season ended so that was something I thought we…just like (Kamerion) Wimbley, I thought we acted quickly when those guys became available to add them to our roster. I think they’re gonna be two huge additions. … And we’re not done, not only there, but other positions. So that’s the goal, and if Eugene ends up being the guy, I think he’s a very good football player and we’ve done a lot of great things with him at center and at guard. So, I think we’re just trying to add competition to the position."

Munch can say what he wants, but they have brought every center with a pulse in for a visit this offseason. It is pretty clear that they are desperately searching for an upgrade at the position. My guess is they address it fairly early in the draft.
