The Cleveland Browns have plans to honor Pro Football Hall of Fame running back Jim Brown at FirstEnergy Stadium with a statue.

Browns owners Jimmy and Dee Haslam made the announcement on Tuesday, which is also Brown’s 80th birthday.

“Everyone admires the incredible impact that Jim Brown has made for Cleveland, the Browns and the NFL throughout his lifetime, and we have had the special opportunity to know and learn from his contributions to our team on a personal level, as well,” said the Haslams. “It is only fitting that one of the most iconic professional football players and members of Cleveland and the Browns is commemorated with this statue as he will always be such a permanent fixture in our city.”

The statue will be erected outside of the southeast corner of FirstEnergy Stadium. No other Browns player has worn his legendary No. 32 since his retirement in 1965.

“It humbles me to be honored in this manner,” said Brown. “Dee and Jimmy Haslam, thank you for the respect and love. Your investment in Cleveland is unparalleled. To the fans of the Cleveland Browns, I guess I’ll always be with you – thank you.”

The Browns are also marking his birthday among his many milestones through a dedicated website,, and #HappyBirthdayJimBrown.
