Posted: Updated:

Cleveland (WOIO) - Legendary running back Jim Brown cancelled a speaking engagement at the NFL's Rookie Symposium on Tuesday, but released this statement: 

"I am very sorry that I am unable to attend tomorrow's Hall of Fame session with the rookie class.  Our young NFL players are very dear to me, but due to my extensive travels of late, I am extremely tired and need to rest.  I look forward to returning to Ohio this summer for all of the festivities as we celebrate 50 years of the Pro Football Hall of Fame."

Among the speakers who did address the class of 2013, Adam Jones, Maurice Clarett and former NBA player Chris Herren.
