Willie Brown played cornerback for Eddie Robinson at Grambling, and went on to become a Superbowl champion and Hall of Famer with the Oakland Raiders. Willie Brown passed away on Tuesday. Prayers for his family.

In popular football culture, Willie Brown is remembered mostly for two things:

1. This slow motion replay of his pick six in Superbowl XI.


2. Saving a copy of the1967 telegram from Al Davis announcing that the Raiders had made a trade with the Broncos to acquire Brown. Check out the telegram and see if you recognize any of the other names involved in the trade.


Maybe the old ball coach will share a story with us about this trade.
