In a tradition the Cleveland Browns have started since 2001, this Sunday September 23, the Browns will induct running back Ernie Green and cornerback Clarence Scott into their class of Cleveland Browns Legends.

The Cleveland Browns will induct former defensive back Clarence Scott (1971-83) and running back Ernie Green (1962-68) into the Cleveland Browns Legends, the team announced today. The pair will be honored during Alumni Weekend (September 22-23), which will include a special halftime ceremony at Cleveland Browns Stadium during the Browns home game on September 23 against the Buffalo Bills. The Browns created the Cleveland Browns Legends program in 2001 to honor former players who have made a major impact on the organization. After being on hiatus in 2009, the program was brought back in 2010, coinciding with the unveiling of the Ring of Honor at Cleveland Browns Stadium.
