Buffalo Bills Owner Ralph Wilson Dies At 95

Ralph Wilson, the founder and owner of the National Football League's Buffalo Bills, died on Tuesday. He was 95.

Bills president Russ Brandon announced Wilson's passing at the NFL Annual Meeting in Florida, according to a report on the NFL's official website.

Wilson owned the Bills for 54 years and was the last of the original American Football League owners. The AFL and NFL merged in 1970.

Under his ownership, the Bills won two AFL Championships in the 1960s and reached the Super Bowl four years in a row in the early 1990s, but lost each time.

Wilson was enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2009.
