Coming out of Notre Dame, the Raiders made Brown the sixth overall pick of the 1988 draft. And he rewarded them by becoming one of the best receivers in team history.

In sixteen seasons with the team, Brown caught 1,070 balls for 14,734 yards and 99 touchdowns. He is far and away, the leader in reception yardage in team history, and his 104 touchdowns make him the team’s non-kicking scoring leader.

Though the team could never manage to get him the ultimate prize – a Super Bowl ring – Brown has a very lengthy list of awards and accolades. A nine time Pro Bowler, a two time first team All Pro, seven time All Conference, a member of the 1,000 catch club – a club that currently has just twelve members, he is also a member of the 1990’s All Decade team.

After waiting a ridiculous amount of time given the fact that he is fifth on the career receptions list and sixth on the career receiving yardage list, Brown finally earned induction into the Hall of Fame in 2015.
