Bills general manager Brandon Beane and head coach Sean McDermott shared words of continued support for the Pegula family during their meeting with reporters from the NFL Combine in Indianapolis.
On Feb. 7, Jessica Pegula penned a letter in The Players’ Tribune, sharing details about her mom Kim Pegula's cardiac arrest in June of 2022.
Both Beane and McDermott took time to express their continued love and support for the Pegulas, while also praising Jessie for the heartfelt letter.
"I texted (Jessica), I was like, you know, for that to be your mother and to be able to put those words, I thought she crushed it," Beane said. "And I know it was much needed for the community of people that we care about and the Pegula family. And so she did a great job."
McDermott acknowledged that it's been a difficult year in the Buffalo community and is proud of the strength displayed by all parties during this time.
"We've been through a lot and the Pegula family has been through a lot. I'll say the other thing that sometimes I think gets overlooked is how strong Terry has been with everything that he has going on and the support that he gives us, just here at the Bills. I think that's just to me an incredible display of strength," he said.
While Kim continues to heal and improve, the Bills family is still thinking of her and the Pegulas every day.
"That's definitely been a change for us and her having to put her health first and foremost," Beane said. "And you miss her. Obviously you miss her leadership, but you miss her as a person."
