CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns are in their offseason, heading towards the 2021 season with heightened standards, plenty of promise and a special anniversary the organization is celebrating.
This season marks the Browns 75th anniversary, a milestone the team is celebrating with a special logo and a shared mentality of taking what they accomplished this past season and making themselves better for next season.
“As we turn the page on the 2020 season, we’re back to work starting the next chapter for our 75th anniversary. In coach’s words, it’s about the work, never being satisfied and we want more," said Browns Executive Vice President J.W. Johnson. “The season was exciting, but the best is yet to come.”
Johnson told sports radio station 92.3 The Fan that the team will also have an alternate uniform for the 75th anniversary.
Coached by legendary Paul Brown, the Browns took the field for the first season in 1946. In that season, the team—led by quarterback Otto Graham, fullback Marion Motley and end Mac Speedie—ended with a 12-2 record and won the All-America Football Conference championship game.
The Browns will look to embrace the culture of a hard work ethic, next-man up mentality and humble attitude as they honor their roots while still looking ahead to the future.
