Frank Ryan

Team: Cleveland Browns

Position: quarterback

College: Rice

I believe that Ryan is wearing Len Dawson's old jersey in this photo. Dawson wore number 18 for the Browns, and the Browns released him around June 1, 1962. The Browns then acquired Ryan in a trade on July 12, 1962. By the time the Browns had their 1962 team photo taken, Ryan was wearing number 13, his number for his seven seasons in Cleveland.
