Former Chief Joins A Ring Of Honor

New, comment

As we noted before, former Chiefs players going into their college hall of fame is a staple of our offseason coverage considering nothing else is going on. Today is no different.

Former Chief E.J. Holub is entering the Texas Tech Ring of Honor.

Interesting line from his bio, via Texas Tech: "...is the only player in history to start two Super Bowls at two different positions (started Super Bowl I at linebacker and Super Bowl IV at center)."

I did not know that.

The rest of his bio,via Texas Tech:
