Pete Brown, the Bengals senior vice president and co-founder of the team along with his brother Mike and father Paul Brown passed away yesterday at age 74. "Pete was the quiet one but his talent spoke volumes, said Mike Brown in a statement. "Pete was more prone to action than talk, and his contributions to the Bengals were significant. He was a fine scout and judge of prospects, a wonderful business partner and an even better brother and family member. Everyone who knew Pete cared about him and respected him. I feel his loss deeply.
