Here’s what ESPN reported:

Jim Brown, one of the greatest professional and college football players of all-time, has died at the age of 87.

His wife, Monique, announced Brown’s death in an Instagram post on Friday afternoon. She said Brown “passed peacefully” on Thursday night in their home in Los Angeles.

“To the world he was an activist, actor, and football star,” the post read. “To our family he was a loving and wonderful husband, father, and grandfather. Our hearts are broken…”

In 2020, Brown was selected to the NFL 100 all-time team and also was ranked as the No. 1 all-time player on the College Football 150 list to celebrate those sports’ anniversaries. He was named the greatest football player ever by the Sporting News in 2002.
