Statements from Bills Owners Terry and Kim Pegula and Bills General Manager Doug Whaley on the passing of Pittsburgh Steelers Chairman Dan Rooney:
"Dan Rooney is one of the true pioneers and pillars of the National Football League and deserves a lot of the credit for the success that our sport has enjoyed for a very long time. On top of that, he was as classy and nice of a man you will ever come across. On behalf of the Buffalo Bills and our great fans in Western New York, we send our condolences to the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Rooney family."
-Terry and Kim Pegula, Bills Owners
“Being a native of Pittsburgh, I know what Dan Rooney and the Rooney family have meant to the region and all of Steelers Nation. He hired me twice and was very instrumental to me being where I am professionally. More importantly, the life lessons he imparted to me helped me grow as a person, a husband and a father. My condolences go out to the Rooney family and the Steelers organization.”
