Jim Brown No Longer Has Official Role With the Browns

Pro Football Hall of Fame running back Jim Brown is no longer an executive adviser to the Cleveland Browns, Tony Grossi of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer reports.

Brown will "remain available to the club", but after a discussion with Browns president Mike Holmgren, it was determined that Brown would be involved in the organization, but would no longer have an official title.

Hall of Fame wide receiver Paul Warfield, who has worked for the Browns, primarily in their scouting department, since 1981, is contemplating his future with the organization.

"If he (Warfield) wants to continue, we want him," Browns general manager Tom Heckert said.

Warfield caught 297 passes for 5,210 yards and 52 touchdowns during eight seasons (1964-69, 1976-77) with the Browns. Warfield spent five seasons with the Dolphins, catching an additional 156 passes for 3,355 yards and 33 touchdowns. Overall, Warfield was named to eight Pro Bowl teams, and was the leading receiver on the '72 Dolphins, the only team in NFL history to have a perfect season.

Brown was inducted to the Hall of Fame in 1971, while Warfield entered the Hall in 1983.
