“We are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Mr. Wilson. He was a dear friend to Mr. and Mrs. Ford, the Ford Family and the Lions organization.

“Mr. Wilson truly was one of the great visionaries and caretakers of our game. He was a great Detroiter and has left a lasting legacy for the city of Buffalo and Western New York.

“We lost a tremendous leader and a true friend today, and his contributions to the NFL will endure forever.

Our deepest sympathies and prayers go out to his family, friends and the Buffalo Bills organization.”
