"On behalf of the entire Buccaneer organization, I would like to extend out deepest sympathies to Tony and his family. Out thoughts and prayers will be with the Dungys as they try to move forward from this most difficult time. We will be asking for a moment of silence from our fans prior to the Falcons game to honor the memory of James."

-Malcolm Glazer, Buccaneers owner

"Our Colts family is united in prayer and support for the Dungy family at this time. It is an unspeakable tragedy, and we will do whatever we can to assist Tony, Lauren and their children."

- Colts Owner and C.E.O. Jim Irsay

"The thoughts and prayers of everyone in the Colts organization are with Tony and his family. Those joining the organization in these sentiments are asked to observe the family?s wish for privacy at this time...Tony made it clear to both myself and to Jim that he wished for the organization and the team to carry on. And we will. We have the greatest role model there is in Tony Dungy."

- Bill Polian, Colt's team manager

"The whole family is good people. You know Tony, how he raised a family. A tragedy. I know the prayers of the National Football League go out to him and his family."

- Herman Edwards, New York Jets coach and one of Tony Dungy's closest friends
