Our readers here are likely familiar. Brown helped explain the greatness of the Pittsburgh Steelers Linebacker for this feature — practices with Greg Lloyd and Kevin Greene were legendary — and he told some hilarious stories in “The Blood and Guts.” Brown played with (and against) Mark Bruener and once had this hysterical encounter vs. Denver’s Shannon Sharpe:
This is a career that spanned different eras. In ‘95, Brown reached the Super Bowl. In ‘96, he was named a first-team All Pro with 13 sacks and finished fourth in the defensive player of the year voting. Brown made two more Pro Bowls in Seattle and spent most of the ‘07 season with the Patriots. That team, of course, nearly went a perfect 19-0. In all, Brown totaled 79 sacks, 17 forced fumbles, 15 fumble recoveries, three touchdowns and 1,091 tackles over a 14-year career.
Born in Altadena, Calif., he went to college at the University of Colorado.
These days, Brown is a busy man working in sports media. He recently called playoff games for ESPN Radio and shared this tweet the night Damar Hamlin nearly lost his life. Brown likely spoke for countless NFL players:
Thanks, everyone. Hope to see you tonight.
