Buffalo Bills are set to be sold after the death of their long-time owner Ralph Wilson, according to NFL.com

NFL insider Michael Silver was on NFL Network as he talked about the possibility of the sale in what he called 'interesting times for Western New York.'

"He created something very special in Buffalo. The Bills have a very proud fan base and a very loyal fan base, even with the stretch of not making the play-offs," Silver explained. 

"There is a sense that the team will likely be sold after Mr Wilson's passing, so it's very interesting times for Western New York."

Wilson's legacy doesn't just lie with the Bills and what he did with the franchise with whom he was an owner for 54 years. 

His effect has been felt by the league as a whole, and the Philadelphia Eagles Chairman & CEO Jeffrey Lurie passed on his tributes via the Eagles Twitter feed

"Ralph Wilson was not only a founding father of the AFL but an iconic leader of what's so special about the NFL," the official Philadelphia feed read.
