CBS Pittsburgh is reporting that the Pittsburgh Steelers will be honoring their former Chairman this upcoming 2017-2018 NFL Season. The Steelers will be wearing a patch on their jersey in honor of Dan Rooney who passed away in April at the age of 84.
His son who is the current president of the team made an official statement last week.
“We wanted to have something my dad would be proud of and really called out parts of his life that were important to him,” Steelers’ President Art Rooney II said
The Steelers sent out a press release stating that the patch on their jerseys will feature a black and gold shamrock with the initials DMR engraved.
