Buffalo Bills owner Ralph Wilson, Jr. is 94 years old, so it's newsworthy when he makes a public appearance. The Pro Football Hall of Fame is celebrating 50 years by hosting the largest gathering of Hall of Famers in its history, and it includes the member of the AFL's Foolish Club.

He arrived in a wheelchair, as you can see from the photo above, posing with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. Despite the chair, he stood for the official photo, according to Tim Graham of The Buffalo News, with the help of Frank Gifford. While in Canton, he spoke with several members of the Buffalo Bills family. Here is Jim Kelly, Wilson, James Lofton, and Marv Levy, from left to right.

In one more piece of recognition, the folks at St. John Fisher named the athletic building for Wilson this offseason. Here's a photo from Rochester Democrat and Chronicle columnist Leo Roth.

Wilson hasn't attended a Buffalo Bills game since 2011, but is planning on being at the home opener according to his wife.
