The Browns have had many great players throughout their illustrious history, dating back to when the team was established in 1946.
With not a whole lot happening in the NFL at present thanks to the lockout, it seems a good time to look back and review what are, in my opinion, the 50 greatest players in NFL history.
You won't find any current Browns on this list, as none have had the chance to establish themselves as worthy of being included in this pantheon just yet, but there are a few who I have a feeling will find their way onto this list in the future.
But for now, enjoy the trip down memory lane as we review 50 of the greatest football players ever to don the orange and brown.
Author's Note: The players included here are not necessarily in an exact ranking order descending from 50 to 1. I feel it is impossible to make such determinations with absolute certainty when comparing players from different eras at different positions, though I do feel that most are around or near the place in this list where the rightfully belong.
