Cleveland BrownsJim Brown. James Nathaniel "Jim" Brown (born February 17, 1936) was a running back for the Cleveland Browns from 1957 to 1965. Though also known as an actor and social activist, he is best known for his exceptional work on the gridiron and his record-setting nine-year NFL career. In 2002, he was named by The Sporting News as the greatest professional football player ever.
Brown who played his college ball at Syracuse was taken in the first round of the 1956 draft by the Cleveland Browns. By the time he retired he was the NFL record holder for both single-season (1,863 in 1963) and career rushing (12,312 yards), as well as the all-time leader in rushing touchdowns (106), total touchdowns (126), and all-purpose yards (15,549). He was the first player ever to reach the 100-rushing-touchdowns milestone, and only a few others have done so since, despite the league's expansion to a 16-game season in 1978. Remember, Brown's first four seasons were only 12 games, and his last five were 14 games. Below are Jim Brown's stats for two of his MVP seasons, 1958 and 1965.¹
