The news of the passing of Willie Brown has hit hard for many who knew him over his six decades in the NFL, including his 52 years with the Raiders organization. The mourning has only begun. It is coming from anyone who has ever met Willie Brown because he was truly beloved by anyone who came in contact with him.

Raiders owner Mark Davis

“It’s A Very Sad Day For The Raider Nation As A Whole.. And For My Family In Particular.. Willie Brown Was One Of The Greatest To Ever Play The Game.. But It Was Off The Field And How He Treated My Mom For Which I Will Forever Be Indebted To Him.. Every Road Trip It Was Willie Who Helped My Mom Up And Down The Stairs Of The Plane.. It Was Willie Who Joined Her For All Dinners On The Road.. It Was Willie Who Came To Her Every Birthday And Mother’s Day Dinner.. It Was Willie Who Was Her Best Friend.. We Loved And Will Miss You Willie.”
