Aaron Lewis Brown, Jr. (November 16, 1943 – November 15, 1997) was an American football defensive lineman born in Port Arthur, Texas. Brown played for the Kansas City Chiefs from 1966 to 1972 and Green Bay Packers from 1973 to 1974. Brown is an alumnus of the University of Minnesota.
Brown was selected by the Kansas City Chiefs with their first round selection in the 1966 American Football League Draft and later that year Brown participated in the first AFL-NFL World Championship game with the team (later known as the Super Bowl). Three years later, Brown was on the 1969 Chiefs' team that won the final AFL-NFL World Championship. Due to his speed of 4.7 in the 40 yard dash, Hank Stram, Kansas City Chiefs Coach decided to try Brown at running back. Brown developed callouses on his thighs which caused him to miss most of a season. Brown's greatest disappointment was failure to start in Super Bowl I when Stram started 6' 6" Hurston who at 220 pounds due stomach flu was a target for Green Bay's running game. Brown made up for the missed start in Super Bowl I when in Super Bowl IV, he tackled Minnesota QB Joe Kapp forcing him to leave the game.
