Buffalo Bills longtime owner Ralph Wilson, who helped found the American Football League in 1960, died at his home on Tuesday afternoon. He was 95.
Bills president Russ Brandon made the announcement at the NFL owners meetings in Orlando, Fla.
"It's tough. It's very tough," Brandon said. "I worked for him for 18 years and talked to him every day for 18 years -- sometimes multiple times a day."
Wilson was the founder and sole owner of the Bills after establishing the team with the upstart AFL in 1960. He played a key role in the league's merger with the NFL, and was inducted into the Football Hall of Fame in 2009.
