4. Jim Brown:
Brown is an all-time NFL legend who redefined the running back position during his dominant run of the 1950s and 1960s. In his nine years, Brown made nine Pro Bowls and eight First-team All-Pros. He won three NFL MVP awards as well. Eight times he led the NFL in rushing yards. Brown also led the league in rushing touchdowns five times.
Despite the fact he retired many years ago, he’s still discussed as one of the greatest backs in NFL history. Overall, that’s a testament to his greatness even if he retired at 29 years old. Brown did so to pursue a promising movie career. The Browns legend has appeared in several movies since, finding a measured degree of success. But his skills in the movie industry pale in comparison to his outright success in the NFL. Regardless, Brown will always be one of the best running backs ever.
