The New Orleans Saints issued a statement Wednesday evening following the death of longtime public address announcer Jerry Romig:
"Mr. and Mrs. Benson and the entire Saints organization offer our deepest condolences to the Romig family on the passing of their father Jerry.
"Jerry Romig was synonymous with the Superdome serving 40-plus years as public address announcer - an iconic voice and a great family man - he will be missed."
From Saints Owner Tom Benson: "Jerry Romig was part of our team, part of our family. One of my favorite days was putting a Super Bowl ring on his finger."
