Professional career

Brown was drafted in the first round (second overall) of the 1964 NFL Draft by the Philadelphia Eagles. In 1969, after five consecutive all-league seasons with the Eagles, Brown was traded to Los Angeles. That year the Rams offensive line set an NFL record for protecting the passer.

Brown was named All-Pro five of his ten seasons with the Eagles, Rams and Oakland Raiders. Named the NFL/NFC offensive lineman of the year three times, Brown was also chosen to play in six Pro Bowls - three with the Eagles, two with the Rams, and one final time with the Raiders.

Brown's #64 was permanently retired by Nebraska in 2004. Brown's is only the second such retirement in Nebraska football history, joining Tom "Train Wreck" Novak's #60.
