Ken Stabler, the man know as “The Snake”, who played for the Raiders for 10 years and had a 15 year NFL career with 4 Pro Bowl appearances, passed away Wednesday night due to color cancer. He was 69 years old.
Stabler also played with the Oilers and Saints, but will always be remembered for his time with the Raiders, leading the league in touchdown passes twice.
The Raiders are deeply saddened by the passing of the great Ken Stabler, Oakland owner Mark Davis said. 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.
