Chiefs | Shields sounds like he wants to be back in 2006

Sun, 12 Feb 2006 06:05:00 -0800

Jason Whitlock, of the Kansas City Star, reports Kansas City Chiefs OG Will Shields is talking line a man who wants to return to the team in 2006. Shields isn't doing anything all that special to commemorate his 11th trip to the Pro Bowl this weekend. He's also not measuring his words when asked about the possibility of retirement. "I'll know in a couple of weeks, maybe by March 3. Isn't that the first day of free agency?" Shields said to Whitlock early Friday evening, Feb. 10, at the Pro Bowl team hotel. "It all depends on my knees and back." Thursday night, Feb. 9, one of Shields' teammates assured Whitlock that this weekend's Pro Bowl would not be the last for Shields. The popular thinking among the players in Honolulu is that the Chiefs, with Herm Edwards pushing the buttons, are the non-playoff team most likely to make a 2007 Super Bowl run. Shields said Edwards' coaching style would benefit his ailing back and knees.
