Bud Adams was the owner of the Tennessee Titans, a National Football League franchise. He was instrumental in the founding and establishment of the former American Football League. Adams became a charter AFL owner with the establishment of the Titans franchise, which was originally known as the Houston Oilers. He is the senior owner (by time) with his team in the National Football League, a few months ahead of Buffalo Bills’ owner Ralph Wilson.
We will keep you updated but as of right now this would be a huge loss to football a few days after losing Bum Phillips.
@BrentZwerneman: Bud Adams has passed away in Houston, a source has told me.
@BrentZwerneman: All early indications are that Bud Adams’ death is of natural causes, source said. Also stressed ‘early indications.’
