Katie Blackburn Honored in Article on NFP

Katie Blackburn
NFL fans had a rare opportunity to watch Katie at work on last year’s Hardknocks series on HBO, where she tackled the challenge of getting first-round pick Andre Smith into training camp. As the daughter of Cincinnati Bengals GM/owner Mike Brown (and granddaughter of the team’s founder, Paul Brown), Katie certainly had some advantages when it came to getting her NFL career started. In no way, however, was her Executive Vice President position simply handed to her. A Harvard Law School graduate, Katie is a tough negotiator who is also well-versed in the ways of the football industry, and it is her hard work and knowledge that have poised her for success in the NFL.

Love her, or hate her, Katie's our negotiator with the players. Jack Betchta from National Football Post gives us a rare look at the women in the NFL, and shows at least SOMEONE other than dad appreciates her efforts.

Does any of this change your opinion about Katie?
