During his playing days, running back Greg Pruitt represented the Cleveland Browns every Sunday from 1973-81. This week, Pruitt is again representing the Browns, but in a different capacity.
Pruitt took part in an NFL Play 60 Event and autograph signing in New York City on Tuesday and will be in attendance for the NFL’s 2012 Season Kickoff at MetLife Stadium where the defending Super Bowl Champion New York Giants host their NFC East Division rival in the Dallas Cowboys in the first regular season game of the year on Wednesday night.
Pruitt is the Browns’ fourth all-time leading rusher, having gained 5,496 yards on 1,158 carries. In five of his nine seasons with the Browns, Pruitt led the team in rushing (1974-78). The high-water mark for his career came in 1977, when Pruitt ran for 1,086 yards on 236 carries. During the 1976 season, Pruitt ran for a career-best eight touchdowns.
