After news broke of Floyd Little's passing on Saturday, several Broncos legends who followed in his footsteps expressed their sorrow on social media, as did other Hall of Famers and sports figures across the country.
I'm going to miss Floyd Little. Used to see him at the @WalterCampFF weekend every year. A philanthropist with impeccable character. Had one outstanding trait: He was beloved by everyone. Condolences to his wife DeBorah and their three children. Rest easy, my friend.— Gil Brandt (@Gil_Brandt) January 2, 2021
This embrace says it all. I love this man who was part of setting the path for running backs in the league. Dr dr HOF , #syracuse ‘s finest. True legacy he has left. Rest in paradise.— Andre Reed (@Andre_Reed83) January 2, 2021

Floyd Little was a Hall of Fame person and my childhood hero. We were so blessed and lucky to have known this truly remarkable man. May God rest his soul, and bless his family. Frann and I are crushed and will miss him dearly. The greatest 44 ever. pic.twitter.com/MadflvBapG— Jim Gray (@JimGrayOfficial) January 2, 2021
I have lost a great friend and Syracuse University has lost one of its all-time greatest ambassadors. Floyd Little brought a smile to the face of everyone he encountered. Juli and I send our condolences to DeBorah and Floyd’s family. pic.twitter.com/sIdzEdwhkV— Jim Boeheim (@therealboeheim) January 2, 2021
In summer of 2004, sat in Pat Bowlen's office and asked him a question about important figures in Broncos' history. His first words in the answer: "Floyd Little. There may not be Orange Crush or John Elway or Super Bowls without Floyd Little.''— Jeff Legwold (@Jeff_Legwold) January 2, 2021
