Willie Roaf Elected To Pro Football Hall Of Fame

Former Kansas City Chiefs offensive tackle Willie Roaf has been elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Roaf is among five modern day players in the six-man 2012 HOF class.

Roaf was first eligible for the hall of fame last season, but somehow was unable to make it from the Top 10 to the Top 5. This time around there was no keeping out one of the best tackles most of us have ever seen play the game, a man that was just as good, if not better, than first-ballot Hall of Fame tackle Anthony Munoz.

During his time with the New Orleans Saints and Chiefs, Roaf was an 11-time Pro Bowler, first-team All-Pro six times and a member of two All-Decade teams.

A well deserved honor for Roaf, a man that never should have to wait but will finally get his moment in the spotlight!

The rest of the class is Jack Butler, Curtis Martin, Cortez Kennedy, Chris Doleman and Dermontti Dawson.

Snubbed this time around were first timers head coach Bill Parcells and former Chief Will Shields.
