Legendary Browns RB Jim Brown dies at 87

 

Any debate about the greatest player in NFL history is incomplete if Jim Brown’s name isn’t included.

Brown, whose name is still synonymous with greatness at the running back position more than 50 years after his final NFL game, died Thursday at his home in Los Angeles, his wife told the Associated Press and the Cleveland Browns confirmed. He was 87.

Brown had a nearly immaculate NFL career. He played nine seasons for the Cleveland Browns and led the league in rushing eight times. He was a Pro Bowler all nine seasons and a first-team All-Pro eight times. Before he abruptly retired in 1966, he had the most rushing yards and touchdowns in NFL history. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1971.

Definitely an all time great player. His contributions to advancing the game were fueled by his superhuman ability to advance the ball. RIP.

Many still consider him the GOAT. He played so long ago that he may have been overtaken by say, Jerry Rice. But his tape is off the charts.
