While former Washington Redskins running back Larry Brown will always be one of the franchise greats — he’s one of 46 members of the Washington Redskins Ring of Fame — and has been considered for the Pro Football Hall of Fame on numerous occasions, it’s nice to see him still getting recognized for his accomplishments in 2014, as he has been selected  for the Pro Football Researchers Association’s “Hall of Very Good.”

Drafted by the Washington Redskins in the eighth-round of the 1969 NFL Draft, Brown quickly made himself a go-to weapon in the offense.

During his rookie season, Brown would accumulate nearly 1,200 all-purpose yards and found the end zone four times.

In 1970, Brown would lead the NFL in rushing yards with 1,125. In six games that season, Brown would record at least 100 rushing yards.

In 1972, Brown would become the first Redskin to win AP MVP honors after racking up 1,216 rushing yards and five touchdowns while also adding 473 receiving yards and four receiving touchdowns.

Brown would finish his Redskins career with 5,875 rushing yards and 35 touchdowns, while adding 2,485 receiving yards and 20 touchdowns.

    Larry Brown was great. They didn’t have the surgery back then to properly care for his injured knee.
