Philadelphia Eagles chairman and CEO Jeffrey Lurie

"I will always be thankful for the way Art Modell reached out to me and made me feel welcome when I first became owner of the Eagles. Art was a man with a wonderful sense of humor. He also had a visionary grasp of the importance of making professional football accessible to television audiences, helping build the sport's popularity to this day. We extend our condolences to the Modell family on his passing." -- Jeffrey Lurie Pictured with coach Andy Reid
