Jim Brown and EA Sports reached a settlement on Tuesday.

EA Sports will pay $600,000 to the hall-of-fame football player.

Brown sued the company for the unauthorized use of his image in the "Madden" video games.

"I took a stand for all athletes and laid a framework for future plaintiffs with my great legal team," Brown said in the statement. "Hopefully, this is a step forward in getting companies like Electronic Arts to recognize the value that athletes have in selling their products."
