Pro Football legend, Curley Culp passed away today due to complications from pancreatic cancer.  He was 75 years old.

Culp announced earlier in the month that he had stage 4 cancer.

Known for his raw strength, Culp was an All-American at Arizona State.  The Denver Broncos took him with their Second Round Pick in 1968, but they considered him a bad fit, and too short to make it in the NFL.  They traded him to the Kansas City Chiefs, and a year later, he was named an AFL All-Star, and was a large part of the team that won Super Bowl IV.  With Kansas City, he also was a Pro Bowl Selection, earning that in 1971.

The Nose Tackle was traded to Houston in 1974, and he became the heart of a potent Oilers 3-4 Defense that was made for Culp’s skills.  Stronger than ever, Culp was named to four consecutive Pro Bowls with the Oilers (1975-78), and was the runner-up for the AP Defensive Player of the Year in 1975.  Playing until 1981, Culp has been called by many pundits as the greatest Nose Tackle of all-time.

Culp was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2013, and is also a member of the Kansas City Chiefs Hall of Fame and Arizona State Athletic Hall of Fame.

We here at Notinhalloffame.com would like to extend our condolences to the fans, friends and family of Curley Culp.
