Pro Bowl guard Will Shields has ended his hold out. Shield agreed to sign the Chiefs one-year offer for 4.1-million dollars, and says he will be on the practice field today. Shields had visited camp over the weekend, and indicated he was eager to get back to work with his teammates. The Chiefs now plan to begin negotiating a long-term deal with Shields. General manager Carl Peterson wanted Shields to sign the one-year deal first, because if they signed Shields to a longer contract, they would have lost their franchise player tag for the length of that contract. Now the team can use the tag again next year on another player. Kimble Anders is back in camp after missing time because of the death of his mother. Anders says his mother had been ill for some time. With Shields in camp, the Chiefs can turn their full attention to their only remaining unsigned player, first round draft pick Sylvester Morris.
