The Colts organization is saddened by the passing of Pittsburgh Steelers Chairman Dan Rooney. Mr. Rooney was one of the most significant and influential figures in NFL history, and his wide-ranging contributions to the NFL and the game of football have left a lasting imprint.
"Dan Rooney was the best of the best," said Colts Owner and CEO Jim Irsay. "A 'top floor' Hall of Fame owner for the League and Steelers, with unparalleled contributions to his team and our league through more than a half-century of leadership. Six Lombardi Trophies for Steeler fans and a true guardian of the game. The NFL became the greatest game on earth in part because of Dan's stewardship over the past six-plus decades."
Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Patricia, and the entire Rooney family.
