Upon the conclusion of the NFL lockout Monday, Indianapolis center Jeff Saturday took to the podium to praise New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and Kraft’s late wife, Myra.

Myra, who had cancer, passed away during the lockout.  Yet, despite his wife of 48 years’ grave condition, Robert kept a seat at the negotiating table, and was instrumental in saving the 2011 NFL season.

“A special thanks to Myra Kraft, who even in her weakest moment, allowed Mr. Kraft to come and fight this out,” Saturday said. “Without him, this deal does not get done. …. [He] helped us save football.”

After those kind words, Saturday put his arm around the much smaller Kraft, and the two man engaged in a heartfelt embrace.  Check it out below.
