JETS GM STEINBERG DIES AT 60 OF STOMACH CANCER
Published September 26, 1995
Jets GM DICK STEINBERG died yesterday at the age of 60 after a nine-month battle with stomach cancer. Steinberg came to the Jets in '89 after helping build Super Bowl teams in Los Angeles and New England. Giants GM George Young: "He was respected by everyone in the personnel community. He never bad-mouthed anybody; he just did his job. He was very competitive, competitive in a quiet way." Steinberg "showed how to handle adversity with class," writes NEWSDAY's Rich Cimini (NEWSDAY, 9/26). Former Rams exec Steve Rosenbloom: "There aren't very many like him around anymore" (L.A. TIMES, 9/26). Columnist Jay Greenberg, on Steinberg's battle with cancer: "Steinberg continued to come to the office anyway, without his hair, without his appetite, without complaint" (N.Y. POST, 9/26).
