Roger Goodell: ‘Bart Starr was one of the most genuine, sincere people I knew’

Hall of Famer and former Packers QB Bart Starr died today. He was 85. Starr, who struggled with his health over the years, suffered two strokes in 2014.

In 16 seasons, all with the Packers, Starr won five NFL championships and two Super Bowls.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell had this to say about Starr:

“Bart Starr was one of the most genuine, sincere people I knew,” Goodell said in a statement. “He personified the values of our league as a football player, a family man, and a tireless philanthropist who cared deeply about helping at-risk kids. Above all, he was a wonderful human being who will be remembered for his kindness and compassion. On behalf of the entire NFL family and football fans all over the world, we send our heartfelt condolences to his wife, Cherry, his family, and the Green Bay community. He will be sorely missed.”
