DEVELOPING: Bills Owner Ralph Wilson Dies


One of the men responsible for the growth of football as we know it passed away in hospice care in Michigan at the age of 95.

Buffalo Bills owner Ralph Wilson was one of the original AFL owners who picked up a franchise for $90,000 in 1960. He turned that faith in the sport into being an AFL champion and a contender for the NFL title with an unheard of 4-time run to the Roman Numeral Classic.

He left a mark on his adopted town and will be missed by an entire region...

He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2009- only becoming the fourth owner to be inducted at the time...
