Cuomo gives statement about Wilson's passing

Albany, N.Y. (AP) -- Buffalo Bills President Russ Brandon has told NFL owners that Bills owner Ralph Wilson has died.

Tuesday afternoon, Gov. Andrew Cuomo released a statement.

STATEMENT FROM GOVERNOR CUOMO ON THE PASSING OF RALPH WILSON JR.

Today we lost a legendary member of the New York family. Ralph Wilson Jr., the last remaining original team owner of an AFL franchise, member of the NFL Hall of Fame, and founder of the Buffalo Bills, gave us a team that has been the pride of Western New York for the past 54 years. The Bills remain, to this day, an economic engine for the region, generating revenue and providing jobs at a stadium that will bear Mr. Wilsons name for years to come. From his military service during World War II, to his ownership of the Bills, Mr. Wilson left a legacy of leadership that helped keep the team in Buffalo for more than half a century. His passion for football and dedication to his community epitomized the spirit of the Buffalo Bills and their fans. On behalf of all New Yorkers, I extend my deepest condolences to his family, friends and the entire Bills organization.
