Readers' pick: Jim Brown, RB

Well, that was easy.

Jim Brown, arguably the greatest player of all time, was overwhelmingly voted the greatest player in Cleveland Browns history by fans.

Brown only played for nine seasons. But he was so dominant during his time in the league that we may never see his combination of speed, size, power, elusiveness and intelligence ever again.

There's not much more to analyze here. If anything, we would be interested to hear from those who feel there's been a better football player in Cleveland than Brown. Quarterback Otto Graham finished a distant second.

Otherwise, let's move on to the next team.
