Dolphins legend Larry Csonka posts touching tribute to the late Jim Brown
On Friday, news broke that former Cleveland Browns running back Jim Brown died the day prior at 87 years old.
Brown spent nine seasons with Cleveland from 1957-65, making the Pro Bowl in every season, being named a First-team All-Pro eight times and winning MVP thrice.
By many, he’s considered the greatest running back of all time.
After the news of Brown’s passing came on Friday, former Miami Dolphins fullback Larry Csonka took to Twitter to share his thoughts on the legendary Cleveland back.
Jim Brown was the first player I followed. Fun time to be a young kid in OH & a Browns fan. My decision to play at Syracuse was heavily influenced by their history of star RB’s including Jim Brown, one of the best! I’m honored to forever call him a HOF brother. RIP Jim. #legend pic.twitter.com/nXHCXvXyvD

Brown was an inspiration for many other young athletes on the field in those days, and his legacy as one of the greatest football players of all time shouldn’t be forgotten.
