Jim Brown


Jim Brown is arguably the greatest running back in NFL history, Hall of Famer, and Cleveland Browns legend.  He also is a special advisor for the Browns and gave his opinion on the trade of Trent Richardson.

“I was surprised,” Brown said of the trade. “But then I thought it was a brilliant move … Because first of all, Trent [Richardson] couldn’t have carried the kind of load that Cleveland needed.”

There also seems to be no love lost for Brown’s old boss, Mike Holmgren.

“Mike is not from Cleveland. I’m a Cleveland Brown,” Brown said. “So he gave me a choice of taking three dollars and doing a little dancing for him out there. I said, ‘Mr. Holmgren, I’m sorry … I don’t dance … become a mascot type of guy.’ And I cracked up but I wrote him a letter. And I stated those things, and I had a little humor with it because I knew ultimately I would probably be back because Cleveland is my home. I have great roots there and I love the people and the people love me.”

Seems like a lot of this is animostity from Brown being fired back in 2010 before he was brought back earlier this year by Cleveland Browns owner, Jimmy Haslam.
