HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A Houston Oilers hall of famer shared his stage 4 pancreatic cancer diagnosis on social media Tuesday.

Curley Culp was a defensive lineman who helped turn the Oilers around after joining the team in 1974.

Culp was a key member of the Oilers when Bum Phillips was coach.

The 75-year-old played 14 NFL seasons, and was a six-time Pro Bowler.

He posted about his diagnosis on Twitter, and asked his followers to "donate to your local cancer organizations so this dreaded disease is eradicated."
