Happy Birthday Jim Brown!
Today we are also celebrating NFL legend Jim Brown’s birthday as he is turning 78. Jim Brown is considered to be one of the greatest Running backs to have played in the NFL after he was drafted out of Syracuse University in 1957. Jim Brown played 8 years with the Cleveland Browns and there he won an NFL Championship (because the Superbowl was not even around yet!) and also won several MVP honors. Over his career he averaged 104.3 yards per game and 5.2 yards per carry in the NFL. Now, Jim Brown works closely with the Cleveland Browns as he was named “Special Advisor to the Browns”. Brown is highly regarded in the history of Football for all of his accomplishments throughout his lifetime.
