“The Green Bay Packers are very saddened to hear of the passing of Dan Rooney,” said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy. “It’s a great loss for the National Football League and the Pittsburgh Steelers. I don’t think any owner had a bigger impact on the modern NFL than Dan. He was always the voice of reason, had tremendous respect for players, and looked out for the interest of our fans.”

“Our sincerest condolences go out to the Rooney family and the Steelers organization.”
