CLEVELAND (AP) - Ken Konz, a safety with the Cleveland Browns in the 1950s, died Tuesday of complications from pneumonia, the team said. He was 79.
Konz died at a hospital in Alliance, the city where he had been living.
Konz, a two-way halfback out of Louisiana State, was Cleveland's first-round draft pick in 1951 - 14th overall. He joined the Browns two years later after serving as a lieutenant in the Air Force.
He played seven years, all with the Browns, before retiring after the 1959 season. Konz is fourth on the Browns career interceptions list with 30.
