Although he was not elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame when the selection committee voted Saturday, former New Orleans Saints and Kansas City Chiefs All-Pro offensive tackle Willie Roaf said he isn't upset.

Roaf, who played the first nine years of his career with the Saints before being traded to the Chiefs following the 2001 season, said simply making it onto the final ballot in his first year of eligibility was a great feat.
