Browns Get Three On SI's Latest 'Greatest' List

Sports Illustrated loves lists. Their latest ‘Greatest’ list ranks the NFL’s Greatest players by jersey number. You know, the greatest player to ever wear a certain number. It is fun, and is a good conversation starter at parties.

In terms of the Browns, they might just be the only team to have a player on the list twice, for two different numbers.

QB Otto Graham makes the list for No. 14 and #60
RB Jim Brown was a lock at No. 32
OL Lou Groza made the list as well at No. 76.

That’s it. The three players (four numbers) has the Browns tied for 11th in the NFL along with teams like the Broncos and Titans. For what it’s worth, the Bears lead the list with nine players listed.

Who did SI forget about?
