Statement from Steelers Chairman Dan Rooney and President Art Rooney II on Ralph Wilson


We are deeply saddened by today's news of the passing of Ralph Wilson, one of the most respected owners in our league. Ralph made many contributions to both the AFL and NFL, playing a major role in the growth and development of both leagues. His impact helped make the NFL a success, and he always kept the league's best interest in mind to better the game of professional football.

We lost a great man and a great friend today. We want to extend our prayers, deepest sympathies and condolences to his wife, Mary, his daughters and the entire Wilson Family, as well as the Buffalo Bills organization.
