The Kansas City Chiefs have added another Pro Football Hall of Famer. Will Shields will go down in history as one of the all-time NFL greats.
Chiefs fans and Shields' former teammates were obviously excited about the news that he's going to Canton, which was announced on Saturday night at the NFL Honors Show.
We collected some of the reactions. Definitely make sure you read this one from the KC Star's Sam Mellinger.
