Long Overdue! Congrats Tim Brown

Here's a guy who was a dual threat going back to his days at Notre Dame. Tim Brown returned punts, was dangerous across the middle or on the deep route. He could beat you a number of ways on the football field.

Why he wasn't a first ballot hall-of-famer is a mystery. Regardless, he's finally being enshrined in Canton as one of the greatest wide receivers to ever play the game.

Brown won the Heisman Trophy in 1987 as the best college football player and did not miss a beat when he hit the NFL. I've been fortunate to follow his career from Woodrow Wilson High School in Dallas, TX (my old stomping grounds by way of Oakland, CA) to Notre Dame, and being drafted by the Raiders.

Congratulations to one of the greatest Raiders of all time!
