The Cleveland Browns brought back one of the greatest players in the team's history. They named Jim Brown to the role of special adviser. Brown was one of the Cleveland Browns best players of all time. He played for the team for 9 season and helped the Browns win championships.
With his reinstatement to the team, the fans are wondering if his new role, can help the team turn things around. The team said, Brown will play a special role within the community and he will play a role as special adviser to the team.
Jim Brown was part of the Cleveland Browns for years. He was brought in by the Lerner family and he was let go once Randy Lerner named Mike Holmgren as the team's new president some years back. There was a falling out between Holmgren and Brown and for some reason the former Browns president cut the role of Brown. Fans didn't like that at all.
How much of a difference will Jim Brown's new role make for the Cleveland Browns this season? What does the title of special adviser really mean? These are just a couple of questions people are asking.
The team did the right thing according to many. Jim Brown is an icon that has been associated with the Cleveland Browns since the 1950's. The Hall Of Fame running back is one of the last pieces left from the Browns championship years.
His presence with the team didn't help them win in years past, but the fans do get a sense of winning when they see the 77-year-old former Browns running back on the sidelines. Can his presence help turn the Cleveland Browns into a winner? Only time will tell.
Regardless of what happens it is good to see Jim Brown back where he belongs.
