Detroit Lions players will wear a uniform patch during the 2014 season honoring late team owner William Clay Ford, the team confirmed today. Mr. Ford, who passed away March 9, purchased the Lions in November 1963 and officially became sole owner of the team January 10, 1964.

Lions players will wear the uniform patch beginning with the regular season opener (September 8) on Monday Night Football at Ford Field when the Lions host the New York Giants.
