The Buffalo Bills will wear a commemorative jersey patch in memory of Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. during the 2014 season. The patch, which bears the initials of the founding owner of the Buffalo Bills, will be introduced on the jersey of the Bills first-round pick during tonight’s NFL Draft.
“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. “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.”
The Bills will salute Wilson during the weekend of the first 2014 regular season home game. Fans attending the game will receive a token of remembrance in reflection of the patches worn by the players.
