The legendary Raiders wide receiver has finally been named to a Hall of Fame class, after being named a finalist for six straight years.
Brown went up against a much “easier” set of peers in order to finally get into Canton, including just one other wide receiver finalist in ex-Colt Marvin Harrison.
Brown ranks fifth all-time in receptions (1,094), sixth in receiving yards (14,934) and is tied for seventh all-time in receiving touchdowns with 100.
Harrison, who played with future Hall of Famer Peyton Manning, finished his illustrious 13-year-career with 1,102 receptions for 14,580 yards and 128 touchdowns.
Brown will join the rest of the 2015 Class in being inducted into Canton in August: Junior Seau, Charles Haley, Jerome Bettis, Will Shields, Bill Polian, Ron Wolf, Mick Tinglehoff.
