Eleven-time Pro Bowl performer Willie Roaf (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?statsId=2586), one of the NFL's premier left tackles during his 13-year career, has apprised Kansas City Chiefs (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=kan) officials that he is retiring.


Roaf did not go to training camp with the rest of the Chiefs players, and Kansas City officials said his absence was for personal reasons, but that they expected him to report within a few days. But a team source said Friday afternoon that Roaf, who has flirted with retirement each of the last two offseasons, told Chiefs officials that he is ending his celebrated career.

"I guess they want me to reconsider," Roaf told the Kansas City Star. "[But] I'm solid on retiring and going back to school."

Yeah Willie Roaf was a huge part of that sucessful running game in KC for all those years. Let's see if they can plug a guy into the system, or if Roaf was a product of the system.
