Happy Halloween: Which Former Browns Player Would You Insert Into Today's Team?

@Browns and @UHRainbowBabies

Happy Halloween, Dawgs By Nature fans!

Earlier this week, members of the Cleveland Browns gave more than 50 children at Rainbow Babies & Children’s a Halloween celebration to remember. If you are in the Halloween spirit, check out more photos and a video from the event here.

Now, regarding this week's question from Marshall Faulk, he asked us about a "blast from the past," whether it be among the living or someone we would bring back (The Walking Dead style).

Faulk said, "Being GMC Professional Grade is about recognizing those who changed the game. Go back in history and select one former great—just one. Now add him to your team’s roster right now," and then asked us the following question: "Who would it be—and why? And how far does your team go this year, with that one player?"

It's tough to select just one Browns legend who I could insert into the current roster (and we are talking about the "prime" version of themselves, not Jim Brown when he's using a cane). I'd like a Phil Dawson for nostalgic reasons, but is he the type of high-impact player who could put us over the edge?

Let us know in the comments section what you think, Browns fans. From 1964 onward, which one player would be the missing piece to the puzzle for this current Browns team, and how much of a difference would they make in terms of wins and losses?
