Phil Hansen Headed To Bills Wall Of Fame

New, comments

The Buffalo Bills have announced that former defensive end Phil Hansen will become the 27th member of the Buffalo Bills Wall of Fame.

Hansen is something of a cult hero to Bills fans, as his blue-collar playing style and consistent production made him a staple of the Bills teams that dominated the AFC in the 1990s. He played 11 years in the NFL, never suiting up for another team but the Bills, and finished his career with 61.5 sacks - the third-highest total in team history behind Hall of Fame end Bruce Smith, his teammate, and the recently-retired Aaron Schobel.

A second-round pick out of North Dakota State in 1991, Hansen now receives the highest honor that the team can bestow upon him. According to the Bills' press release, the home game in which Hansen's induction ceremony will take place has not yet been chosen. You can bet that whichever game it is, there's going to be a fun, rowdy halftime ceremony.

You're going to want to watch this while you're at it.
