Cleveland Browns Legend Jim Brown Turns 76 Years Old

Arguably the greatest football player to ever live, former Cleveland Browns running back Jim Brown turned 76 today.

The Hall of Famer finished his NFL career with 12,312 rushing yards and 106 touchdowns in nine seasons. He was an 8-time rushing champion, 9-time Pro Bowl selection, 8-time First-Team All-Pro selection, 3-time MVP, and won the NFL Championship in 1964.

While he no longer serves a role within the organization, and left in somewhat ugly fashion, he still remains the greatest player in Cleveland Browns – and perhaps NFL – history.

Brown also shares his birthday with Michael Jordan, making February 17 quite possibly the best day to be born with dreams of becoming a professional athlete.
