In NFL, he spent about a decade and played from giants like Green Bay Packers, Philadelphia Eagles and Baltimore Colts. During this span of time, he showcased some fabulous skills and won several professional games. In fact, he was included in the Pro Bowl team in 1962, 1963 and 1965.
Brown, the only eagle in NFL history to have returned a 105-yard kick for a touchdown and has led the league twice in versatile yards. After hanging up on the epaulettes, he worked as an NFL analyst for CBS and was inducted into the Hall of 2007 Very Good Class Professional Football Researcher Associations. Still being a NFL player, he diverted his mind in acting career and made his debut with an appearance. Later he quit football in order to pursue his acting career more seriously.
Timothy kicked off his acting journey in 1967 by making a guest appearance in the classic western series “The Wild West”. He retired from NFL and became a full time actor and participated in movies and also appeared in some guest roles in television shows as well. In 1970, he played the role of Corporal Judson in the war film MASH; he then played the role of Dr. Oliver Harmon Jones in the first season of M*A*S*H, the adaptation of the television series. This made him one of four actors to play role in both television series as well movies in the history. The character was removed from the series at the end of the first season, apparently because the producers learned that no African American had served as a surgeon in Korea during the Korean War.
