Inside the Bills:
Former Bills GM and current Indianapolis Colts President Bill Polian issued the following statement on the passing of Kent Hull.
“It is a very sad day for those of us with the Colts who were privileged to have Kent Hull as a team mate and friend. His physical toughness, work ethic, intelligence, character and sense of humor made him an undisputed leader on a team filled with Hall of Famers and stars. He was a rock upon which those great Buffalo Bills offensive lines were built. Inside the Bills organization and locker room his leadership was acknowledged, respected and followed by one and all. Kent Hull with relatively few words, but indomitable spirit and consistently excellent deeds, epitomized what made his Bills teams great. He was a fine man, a good friend and a true professional.
Jim Irsay and the Irsay Family join all Kent’s’ friends with the Colts in sending out thoughts prayers and deepest sympathy to Kay Hull and every member of the Hull Family.”
