0

BUFFALO: Ralph Wilson, sole owner of the National Football League’s Buffalo Bills since founding them in 1960, has died at the age of 95, team president Russ Brandon announced. Wilson purchased the club in 1959 for $25,000 as part of the American Football League, which began play in 1960 and later merged with the NFL. The Bills, which were valued by Forbes magazine last year at $870 million, play in a home stadium that bears Wilson’s name. He was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2009.
