Chiefs' great Will Shields enters Hall of Fame

CANTON, Ohio (AP) Kansas City Chiefs lineman Will Shields has powered his way to football immortality.

The 12-time Pro Bowl right guard was inducted into the Hall of Fame on Saturday night. Shields became just the third right guard to enter the Hall.

He made it to Canton in his fourth year of eligibility. The 6-foot-3 Shields joked he's glad he didn't grow another couple of inches because if he was taller he might have been moved to tackle and might not have ended up in Canton.

Shields was presented for induction by good friend Adrian Lunsford.
