The Payton brothers faced each other in a preseason game prior to the 1977 season.
Despite playing in only two regular season games for the Browns in 1977, Eddie played in the NFL for five seasons for the Browns, Lions, Chiefs, and Vikings.
He was a returns specialist who scored 3 touchdowns in his career.

After leaving football, Eddie went on to become an accomplished collegiate golf coach.
On September 23, Eddie, 71, was inducted into the Black College Golf Coaches Hall of Fame in recognition of his 30-year career at Jackson State University working with both the men’s and women’s golf programs.
Happy Wednesday Browns fans!
