WAYNE WEAVER ON LAMAR HUNT
From Jacksonville Jaguars Chairman/CEO Wayne Weaver:
"Lamar Hunt's passing is a great loss to the NFL family. Lamar was truly a pioneer of professional football and for many years he represented his team and the league with dignity, humility and respect. He was a good friend and a great partner, and I am saddened for the Hunt family and for all of us who knew him. The National Football League owes a debt of gratitude to this man as we remember Lamar Hunt."
