Posted by Chris Brown on September 6, 2012 – 12:12 pm

Bills owner Ralph Wilson issued the following statement on behalf of the Bills organization on the passing of former Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Ravens owner Art Modell.

“I am deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Art Modell.  Art and I were good friends and while we remained competitive in respect to our teams, we shared many laughs over the years. He was an influential figure in our league and was respected tremendously within the NFL ownership group. Art was a loving family man and he and Pat made a great team. I want to extend my deepest sympathies to his sons David and John and the entire Modell family and all of his friends.”

Modell passed of natural causes at age 87 with his family at his bed side.
