The Cleveland Browns will celebrate the 60th and 50th anniversary of the 1954 and 1964 NFL championship teams this weekend.
The event will be highlighted by a pregame Cleveland Browns Legends ceremony and a on-field halftime recognition for members of the title winning teams during the Browns matchup against Baltimore on Sunday.
The Browns will induct former G Robert E. Jackson (1978-85) and TE Milt Morin (1966-76) into the Cleveland Browns Legends program during the Alumni Weekend Awards Dinner on Saturday. Browns owner Jimmy Haslam, General Manager Ray Farmer and President Alec Scheiner will be in attendance, along with many former and current Browns players/staff.
Robert E. Jackson was signed by the Browns as a undrafted free agent, and played 11 seasons with the Browns. With Jackson at guard the Browns had a 1,000 yard rusher nine times and protected quarterback, Brian Sipe during his 1980 NFL MVP season.
Milt Morin was the 14th overall pick in the 1966 NFL Draft. Morin spent 10 seasons with the Browns, two of those he made the pro-bowl (1969, 1972). Morin recorded 271 receptions for 4,208 yards and 16 touchdowns. Morin passed away on July 9, 2010.
