The Oakland Raiders have confirmed the death of quarterback Ken Stabler. The 69-year-old fought Stage 4 colon cancer since February.
“The Raiders are deeply saddened by the passing of the great Ken Stabler,” owner Mark Davis said in a team-issued release. “He was a cherished member of the Raider family and personified what it means to be a Raider. He wore the Silver and Black with Pride and Poise and will continue to live in the hearts of Raider fans everywhere. Our sincerest thoughts and prayers go out to Kenny’s family.”
Stabler is survived by his three daughters and two grandchildren. We extend our condolences to Stabler’s family, friends, teammates, and coaches.
