Number: 24

Position: CB

Years: 1967-78

School: Grambling

Acquired in a trade with the Denver Broncos, Brown was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on July 28, 1984. His mark of 39 interceptions is tied for the most in franchise history. He was named All-Pro seven times, and he played in five AFL All-Star Games and four NFL Pro Bowls. He set a then-record with a 75-yard interception return for a touchdown in Super Bowl XI. Brown is widely considered the progenitor of the "bump-and-run" style of man-to-man pass coverage.
