Patriots DE Hill Dies Tragically

This has been a dark, tumultuous off-season in football land, and it continued to worsen yesterday after the body of Patriots defensive end Marquise Hill was recovered from a body of water in New Orleans. Hill was involved in a jetski accident; his female companion was rescued after the accident and survived the incident. The accident does have relation to the Bills, sadly; according to Bills reporter Chris Brown, Hill was a cousin of former Bills great LB Cornelius Bennett.

From the Virginia Tech shootings to the Darrent Williams/Damien Nash tragedies in Denver to this incident, it has been a cold few months since football ended. From the Buffalo Rumblings community, our thoughts and prayers go out to the Hill family, the New England Patriots organization and all Patriots fans on a dark day in Foxboro.
