“Legendary LB/ST Mark Pike has sadly passed away from his battle to cancer. Pike is still the all time leading tackler on special teams in Buffalo history with 255 tackles. He was with the team through his whole 13 year career and went to all 4 Super Bowls in the 90’s. Mark will be missed dearly by many fans, friends and family. RIP Mark Pike.”
