Aaron Brown Thought Carl Eller was the Best

Here is an interesting piece that I dug out of The Day, from New London, Connecticut, issued January 10, 1970.  Aaron Brown often gets overlooked on a Chiefs defense that had so many superstars.  But Brown was a force, himself.  Here, on the eve of Super Bowl IV, the Chiefs defensive end speaks glowingly of his old college linemate, Carl Eller, whom he would face the following day.

    Where is the rest of the article? It seems intriguing. Aaron Brown had a great Super Bowl. He caused a fumble stripping the ball from Joe Kapp. How much longer did he play after 1969?

    Brown played through the 72 season and then played in 10 games or so for the Packers over the next 2 seasons. In putting together the signed roster for the SB IV Club Aaron is one of the tougher ones. I’ve always had a warm spot in my heart for those Chiefs teams. Loved Len Dawson as a player and later on he & Buoniconti added so m e good stories on HBO with “Where are they Now?”
