As a tight end, not an almost always more prolific wide receiver, Ozzie Newsome put up some terrific receiving numbers. How about 662 receptions, 7,980 yards, and 47 TDs?
He played his entire pro career with the Browns, spanning the years 1978, when he was drafted out of Alabama, until 1990.
Newsome was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1999. He is now an executive with the Baltimore Ravens (formerly the Cleveland Browns original team), and was named the NFL's executive of the year after guiding the Ravens to a Super Bowl victory in 2000.
Did you know......Newsome was a member of three SEC champion teams while with Alabama?
