BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) - Today, Buffalo Bills owner Ralph Wilson, Jr. released a statement on the passing of Tennessee Titans owner K.S. "Bud" Adams.

Adams passed away of natural causes at the age of 90 in his Houston home, the team announced Monday.

He was the longest tenured owner in the NFL.

Wilson, Jr. Released a statement, saying:

“I am saddened to hear the news of the passing of Bud Adams. As original AFL team owners, we all shared a common bond and a deep sense of pride in where we started in 1960 to where the NFL is today and how much our fans enjoy the game of professional football. Bud certainly played an important role in the growth and development of our game and today I am remembering with great fondness all the laughs we shared with the special memories over the years. Through it all, our teams played some of the most memorable games in AFL and NFL history. I want to extend my deepest sympathies and condolences to Bud’s daughters Susan and Amy, and family, and to all of his many friends.”
