Eagles Chairman and CEO Jeffrey Lurie was one of the many who expressed his condolences hearing of the passing of Bills founder and owner Ralph Wilson. What Lurie said he valued most was Wilson’s willingness to think outside the box when it came to league matters.
“I admired his independent thinking on every issue that arose and will always remember his welcoming support when I came in to the league,” Lurie said in a statement. “He was a great example of ownership based on his love of the sport and especially his Buffalo Bills. On behalf of the Philadelphia Eagles, I would like to pass along my condolences to the Wilson family and to the entire Buffalo Bills organization.
“Ralph Wilson was not only a founding father of the American Football League, but an iconic leader of what is so special about the NFL. He was a man who loved his football team and his Buffalo fans and always wanted what was best for the NFL.”
