The Browns have decided, at least for the time being, to pull the plug on their Legends class, as they have announced there will not be a Browns Legends Class this year.
“The decision was made to take this season (off) to assess (the) program,” Bill Bonsiewicz, vice president of communications, responded in an email.
The Browns Legends started back in 2001 by late owner Al Lerner, and has had a class each year since it started – till now.
“We would like to establish criteria to ensure we continue to elect deserving individuals to join the over 40 players already inducted.”
The Legends Program right away started with the players of the Browns that were already in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Since then, the media has nominated and elected a class each year representing eras by decades. Fans have also contributed to the vote.
The class of last year included Warren Lahr (1940s-50s), Paul Wiggin (1960s), Walter Johnson (1970s) and Eric Metcalf (1980s and beyond).
