The Philadelphia Eagles mourn the passing of Dan Rooney, chairman of the Pittsburgh Steelers and former U.S. Ambassador to Ireland, who died Thursday at the age of 84.
"Dan represented the very best of the NFL and our country," Chairman and CEO Jeffrey Lurie said. "He was always humble and kind with a total dedication to his team and his community of Pittsburgh. I will really miss his friendship and the advice that he so willingly shared with me over the last two decades. On behalf of the Eagles organization, Tina and I send our thoughts and prayers to the Rooney family and all of Steelers nation."
