    Chiefs | Shields to be released
    Thu, 2 Mar 2006 10:36:55 -0800

    Jay Glazer, of FOXSports.com, reports Kansas City Chiefs OL Will Shields has been informed he will be released.

    Perfect candidate for the Patriots training camp retiree. That being said, he would be a perfect match for the Patriots for the next couple years. He could definately teach Mankins a thing or two.

    Yes! For the past two years we haven't been so lucky on signing guys that retire in training camp. Signing Will Shields woudn't definitely get the Pats out of their slump!

    Scout reported that the Chiefs were going to resign him, but I cant find their article anymore.

    NVM here it is... but you have to use their free trial to read it.

    And this from kansas.com about a half hour ago

    Yet undecided is the fate of 11-time Pro Bowl guard Will Shields, who has one year left on his contract but has had health issues the past few years and could save a lot of cap money. A decision must also be made regarding running back Priest Holmes, who is rehabbing the neck injury that shelved him for the last nine games of 2005.
    Peterson has also been talking with several players about restructuring their contracts to make them more cap-friendly.
    "I'm always much appreciative of players who think about the team first and themselves and their personal contracts second," Peterson said.

    I can most definitely see Priest Holmes eager for his team friendly pay cut!
