According to several reports, Miles Austin showed his knowledge and respect of Cleveland Browns history recently when he asked former Browns quarterback Bernie Kosar permission to wear the No. 19.
Austin, who wore the number as a member of the Dallas Cowboys, sent Kosar a text message with the request according to Mark “Munch” Bishop of ESPNCleveland (WKNR 850 AM).
Bottom line: Austin showed great class and making the request because he didn’t have to. Only a wide receiver – Frisman Jackson – has worn the number since Kosar was released by then coach Bill Belichick, according to Fox Sports Ohio.
