Steelers likely to be sold

November 16, 2008


— Steelers chairman Dan Rooney and his son likely will buy a controlling interest in the team from Rooney's four brothers.

"It's not really (that) a deal has been reached, but we're coming along very well," Art Rooney Jr., one of the brothers, said Saturday.

Dan Rooney was the only person interested in buying the team, which the brothers want to see remain in the family, according to Art Rooney Jr.

"That was a pretty big factor in this whole thing," he said.
