Al David Dies at 82

Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis, whose NFL legend began 60 years ago as an assistant with the Baltimore Colts and was punctuated with a 1992 Pro Hall of Fame induction in Canton, has died at 82.

The team's website released the news Saturday morning, posting a simple tribute with his name in large silver letters above "July 4, 1929-October 8, 2011."

The Raiders said the team will issue a statement later Saturday. No cause of death was released.
