Jim Brown One Of GQ's 25 Coolest Athletes

He may be having some beef with the front office, but that didn’t stop former Cleveland Browns RB Jim Brown being named one of the 25 Coolest Athletes, according to GQ.


And let’s be honest, Brown totally deserves to be there. He was a complete beast on the field, a quote machine, had some SERIOUS style, and quit the game to go to Hollywood and be an action hero after Art Modell “forced” him to decide between football and acting.


If Jim Brown played today, he’d be all over Twitter, would be as much fun in interviews as Clinton Portis, and would have the swagger of Chris Johnson.


The article will be in GQ’s February issue.
