Some very sad news out of the NFL. Earlier today, Buffalo Bills owner Ralph Wilson, who founded the Bills franchise all the way back in 1960, passed away at the age of 95.

Wilson was one of the founding owners of the American Football League and played a big role in the merger that took place between the AFL and the NFL in 1970. He was the longest-tenured owner in the NFL prior to his death and was the last of the original AFL owners still active in the NFL. He was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame back in 2009 and the Bills home stadium is named after him.

R.I.P. to one of the guys who helped turn the NFL into what it is today.
