ORCHARD PARK, NY-- Buffalo Bills players will be honoring their late beloved owner during the 2014 season.
Players will wear a patch with the initials RCW on the front of their jersey in honor of owner Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. who died earlier this year. He was 95.
"Ralph would be humbled to see such a tribute in his honor, worn proudly by a team that meant so much to him," said Mary Wilson, wife of Ralph Wilson, Jr., and controlling owner of the Bills in a released statement. "The patch is a fitting acknowledgement of his commitment to the players, the team, and the Western New York area, and our family is touched by the outpouring of support and remembrance."
Fans attending the first regular season home game will receive a token of remembrance similar to the players patches.
