The former Cleveland Browns player, who was chosen to play in the Pro Bowl every year he was on the team, won MVP three times in his career and is considered to be one of the greatest football players of all time. The fullback also won Rookie of the Year in 1957 after a successful first year in the NFL.
After his perfect attendance stint in the NFL, Jim made the controversial decision to retire while filming the movie Dirty Dozen. He went on to have a notable acting career and publish an autobiography, as well as become an activist for the Civil Rights Movement.
