The Cleveland Browns are 79 days away from the start of the NFL regular season, which is also the uniform number of the heart of the defensive line in the 1980s.
The calendar is slowly counting down the days until the start of the 2017 NFL regular season and we are now just 79 days away from the Cleveland Browns first game.
A three-time Pro Bowl selection, Golic, along with the late Eddie Johnson, was the heart of the Browns defense that helped turn the Browns into a playoff team. While the defense from that era is remembered for helping blow playoff leads, they were a Top 10 unit in points allowed three times from 1985 to 1988 (and finished 11th the other year).
Golic will always hold a special place in the hearts of Browns fans who remember the team’s last great era.
