For the youngsters....former Blue Blazer Erich Barnes was a 6-time NFL Pro Bowler, with 45 career interceptions. Played with the Bears, Giants and the Browns over his NFL career. He is a Purdue University Hall of Fame inductee as well a Cleveland Browns "Legends" honoree. A pretty good place to start the monument.
