CLEVELAND (AP) - Browns Hall of Fame running back Jim Brown has cancelled a speaking engagement with NFL rookies because of an illness.
Brown had been scheduled to conduct a history lesson for AFC rookies on Wednesday at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton. However, the 77-year-old Brown said in a statement that he is extremely tired from extensive traveling and needs rest. Brown said he was sorry he will miss the event, which is part of the NFL's Rookie Symposium. Fellow Hall of Famer Mike Haynes will replace Brown.
The NFC's rookies will visit the hall on Saturday and will get a lesson from Bears great Richard Dent.
Brown was recently hired as a special adviser by the Browns, reconnecting with the team after several years.
