Ernie Warlick, the tight-end for the Buffalo Bills Championship teams of the 1960′s, has passed away at the age of 80.
Warlick had been hospitalized for two weeks after complaining of shoulder pain and his passing was reported Saturday night and confirmed by Amigone Funeral Home. The exact cause of death was not released.
In four seasons with Buffalo, Warlick finished with 90 catches for 1,551 yards and four touchdowns in helping the Bills win AFL titles in 1964 and `65. He averaged 19.96 yards per catch in 1963, which still ranks seventh on the team.
Warlick played in college at North Carolina Central. The Bills signed him in 1962 after he spent five years with Calgary in the Canadian Football League.
