Jim Brown, one of football's greatest ever,
dies at 87

Jim Brown, one of the greatest professional
& college football players of all time, has died.
He was 87.

His wife, Monique, announced Brown's death
in an Instagram post Friday afternoon. She
said Brown "passed peacefully" Thursday
night in their home in Los Angeles.

"To the world he was an activist, actor, & football
star," the post stated. "To our family he was a lov-
ing and wonderful husband, father, and grandfather.
Our hearts are broken..."

In 2020, Brown was selected to the NFL 100 all-time
team & also was ranked as the No. 1 all-time player
on the College Football 150 list to celebrate those
sports' anniversaries. He was named the greatest
football player ever by the Sporting News in 2002.

Brown, who was selected in the first round of the
1957 draft, played nine seasons for the Cleveland
Browns (1957-65) and led the league in rushing 8
of those years. He rushed for 12,312 yards & aver-
aged 5.2 yards per carry over his career.

He also was named a Pro Bowler every year he
played. He led the Browns to the league champion-
ship game 3 times, winning the title in 1964, & was
named MVP 3 times.

He ran for at least 100 yards in 58 of his 118 regu-
lar-season games, never missing a game, rushed
for more than 1,000 yards in seven seasons, includ-
ing 1,527 yards in one 12-game season and 1,863
in a 14-game season.

with disturbing aspects of Jim's life,
arrested a half-dozen times, mostly on
charges of hitting women]
