May 19, 2023

Cleveland Browns legend Jim Brown has died at the age of 87.

"It is with profound sadness that I announce the passing of my husband, Jim Brown," Monique Brown said in a statement. "He passed peacefully last night at our LA home. To the world he was an activist, actor, and football star. To our family, he was a loving and wonderful husband, father, and grandfather. Our hearts are broken."

Brown is one of the greatest running backs of all time, having won three MVPs (including in his rookie season in 1957) and being named an All-Pro in each of his nine NFL seasons, eight of which he was a First-teamer. He was the sixth overall pick in the 1957 NFL Draft out of Syracuse.
