Default 12 Time Pro Bowl Guard Retires for KC.

Chiefs | Shields retires
Sun, 15 Apr 2007 16:19:03 -0700
Len Pasquarelli, of ESPN.com, reports Kansas City Chiefs OG Will Shields has decided to retire after 14 seasons in the NFL. The 12-time Pro Bowl performer and likely Hall of Fame candidate announced his retirement on his Web site. "The love for the game never decreased but, as the years passed, the physical requirements of the game became harder to fulfill each and every day. If it was up to me I would play football forever but, as we all know, that is unrealistic," Shields wrote on the site.



I think he will have no problems getting in the HoF. Another great guard gone from the game.

That is unbelievable. What is the most times to a pro bowl by a Steeler? Ever?

I love watching the Chiefs O-line slowly retire away into nothing.

OL
Mike Webster 9 time
Dermontti Dawson 7 time
Alan Faneca 6 time
Frank Varrichione 5 time

Far as most ever by a single steeler would be Joe Green at 10.

Wow, that makes the Franco story that much more amazing. Plus he is a great dude. For him to be right there with Sanders & Brown (personally don't think Smith compares.) Says it all! We should be very proud.

I have to agree about Smith - I could have gained 1,500+ yards a season behind the OL Dallas had for the better part of the '90s, and I'm slow and uncoordinated.
