snippet:
Offensive guard Will Shields of the Kansas City Chiefs, one of the NFL's most celebrated blockers of this era on the field and most honored philanthropists off it, has decided to retire from the NFL after 14 seasons.

A 12-time Pro Bowl performer and certain candidate for Hall of Fame honors, Shields made the announcement of his retirement on his Web site on Sunday evening.

"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," Shields wrote on the site. "If it was up to me I would play football forever but, as we all know, that is unrealistic."

It can't help LJ to lose two hall of famers who were still performing at a pro-bowl level over two years oh and Trent Green throwing for 4000 yds as well.

That Team has been in a slow decline for a while. They will lose a QB and an OL this year, the draft won't be enough for them.

Maybe we'll get lucky and get them before they have time to 'gel'
