Long time KC Chiefs fans wished for the team's Ring of Honor to return to the facade at Arrowhead Stadium and they got their wish on Sunday. The Ring of Honor is a standing tribute to all the individuals who have been inducted into the Chiefs Hall of Fame. There are now 42 names on the Ring of Honor after Chiefs great Will Shields was inducted on Sunday.
