Detroit Lions To Honor William Clay Ford With Special Patch On Jerseys

William Clay Ford will receive a nice tribute when the Detroit Lions open up their season in September.

The owner of the Lions died a week before his 89th birthday in March due to pneumonia, and he’ll be honored with a patch on the Lions’ uniform this year.

Ford bought the Lions in 1963 for just $4.5 million. Earlier this week, the Lions were valued by Forbes at $900 million.

Of course, Ford also is known for being the grandchild of automotive pioneer Henry Ford.
