39 Days Until the Browns' Regular-Season Opener

Ron Schwane-USA TODAY Sports

We are doing a countdown to the Cleveland Browns' first regular season game against the New York Jets, which is on September 13, 2015. For each day we are counting down, we will try to find a photo of a current or past member of the Browns in that uniform, and we'll also list the players who have donned that jersey in the past.

As of Wednesday, we are just 39 days away from the Browns' regular season opener. No. 39 is currently being worn by free safety Tashaun Gipson. He is also the most notable player in franchise history to have worn the number -- why didn't anybody have it before 1975? Here is the list of players who have worn No. 39 in the history of the franchise, per Pro Football Reference:

From To AV
Billy Pritchett 1975 1975 2
Major Everett 1986 1987 1
Randy Hilliard 1990 1993 10
Marlon Forbes 1999 1999 1
Michael Lehan 2003 2005 3
Daven Holly 2006 2007 10
