[Topeka Capital-Journal] Sunday’s season-ending game may have been the final game for Pro Bowl offensive linemen Willie Roaf and Will Shields, who finished their 13th NFL seasons with a 37-3 victory over Cincinnati.
Roaf and Shields said they would decide whether or not they would retire, too, within a couple months after weighing all their options. The identity of Kansas City’s next head coach could figure into their considerations.
“I’ll have to sit down the next couple of months and see how the body feels,” Roaf said. “But I want to come back if we have a chance to go to the playoffs. I would like to get into the postseason another time in my career.”
Shields, who considered retiring before the current season but returned to run his string of consecutive starts to 207, was even more ambiguous about his plans.
“If I knew right now I would tell you, but I don’t know right now,” he said.
