Daily Links: Washington’s Story; Steelers Pay Respects to Jim Brown
Jerome Bettis, Najee Harris and the Pittsburgh Steelers were among that paid their respects to Hall of Fame Cleveland Browns running back Jim Brown, who died at the age of 87 on Friday.
“Today, we lost a true legend,” Bettis tweeted. “May Jim Brown, my @ProFootballHOF brother, rest in peace and power.”
Brown played for Cleveland from 1957-65, won one NFL title, was a three-time MVP and a nine-time All-Pro and Pro Bowler. He led the NFL in rushing yards eight times and in rushing touchdowns five times, and was the NFL scoring leader once.
