Paul Warfield named to NFL's All-Time team as top 10 wide receiver

Paul Warfield's illustrious Browns career led him to an NFL Hall of Fame induction in 1983, and now one of the franchise's most memorable wide receivers can add another accolade to his career.

Warfield was named to the NFL's All-Time team Friday and recognized as a top 10 wide receiver from the 100-year history of the league. He spent eight total seasons in Cleveland — which selected him 11th overall in the 1964 draft — from 1964-1969 and 1976-1977 and hauled in 271 receptions, 52 touchdowns and 5,210 receiving yards.

For his career, which includes five seasons with the Miami Dolphins, Warfield accrued 85 touchdowns and 8,565 receiving yards. His eight Pro Bowl nods are tied for the fourth-most ever by a wide receiver, and the Warren native retired as the NFL's all-time leader in receiving touchdowns.

Warfield joins Jim Brown and Marion Motley as Browns representatives on the 100-player All-Time team. Legendary coach Paul Brown and former coach Bill Belichick were also the first two of 10 coaches named to the team.
