Will Shields Biography
Will Shields born September 15, 1971 and is a former American college and professional football player who was an offensive guard in the National Football League (NFL) for fourteen seasons. He played college football for the University of Nebraska and earned All-American honors. He played his entire professional career with the NFL's Kansas City Chiefs, and never missed a game in fourteen seasons.
Shields was the third-round (74th overall) pick of the Kansas City Chiefs in the 1993 NFL Draft, and he played for the Chiefs from 1993 to 2006. Beginning with a September 12, 1993 game against the Houston Oilers, he was in the Chiefs' starting lineup for every game, a team record and at the time, the second longest active consecutive starting streak in the NFL behind Brett Favre of the Minnesota Vikings. He started 231 straight games including playoff games. He went to the Pro Bowl every year since from 1995 to 2006, a total of 12, a Chiefs team record. He was an important part in the Kansas City Chiefs offensive line that consistently led the team to a top 5 finish in rushing offense.
Shields blocked for Marcus Allen, Priest Holmes and Larry Johnson during his career. He had blocked for 1,000 yard rushers for five seasons. He blocked for 4,000 yard passers for five seasons while Elvis Grbac did it in 2000 and Trent Green in 2003, 2004, and 2005. In fourteen seasons, Shields never missed a game, and he failed to start only one contest, his first regular-season outing, as a rookie in 1993. On April 15, 2007, following 14 seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs, he announced his retirement from football.
