[KC Chiefs.com] Chiefs President Carl Peterson announced on Tuesday that the club will honor retired Chiefs T Willie Roaf at the Chiefs home game vs. San Diego on December 14th. Roaf is slated to be honored at the 50-yard line during a halftime ceremony that will consist of a highlight video recapping his Chiefs career, along with an opportunity for Roaf to address the Arrowhead Stadium crowd.
Roaf announced his retirement from professional football on July 28, 2006. The 11-time Pro Bowl offensive tackle started all 58 games he appeared in during a four-year career in Kansas City, in addition to starting one postseason contest. He earned four Pro Bowl berths with Kansas City after joining the Chiefs in a 2002 trade. An almost certain candidate for induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, Roaf’s 11 Pro Bowl nominations tie Bengals Hall of Fame T Tony Munoz as the most ever received by an offensive tackle in NFL history.
