On Sunday, the Kansas City Chiefs will bring back the Ring of Honor, which was removed in favor of other offerings as part of the 2012 renovations to Arrowhead Stadium. As part of the ring's return, guard Will Shields will be formally introduced as its latest member, according to The Kansas City Star.

The Chiefs were displaying names of players in the Ring of Honor in between advertising messages on ribbon boards around the stadium, and also has the team's Hall of Honor, where names and busts of honorees could be viewed by fans. Unfortunately, the Hall of Honor is essentially a corridor and Arrowhead is generally packed full, so it wasn't a feasible gameday attraction for those who wanted to see it and still catch the actual game.

But again, it's all coming back now, and Shields will be added to the other 41 names who have been inducted thus far. Shields had his first year of eligibility for the Pro Football Hall of Fame last year, and ended up as a finalist.
