Current and former Detroit Lions players aren't the only people reacting to the passing of owner William Clay Ford. Many other people and teams from around the NFL and even other sports have shared their thoughts on the news as well. Take a look:

Statement from NFL commissioner Roger Goodell:

"For five decades, Mr. Ford's passion for the Lions, Detroit, and the NFL was the foundation of one of the NFL’s historic franchises. As an NFL owner, Mr. Ford helped bring the NFL through enormous periods of change and growth, always guided by his commitment to what was best for the NFL and his beloved Lions. All of us in the NFL extend our heartfelt sympathy to Mr. Ford's wife Martha, Bill Ford, Jr. and the entire Ford family."
