This year,  Raiders legendary wide receiver Tim Brown was inducted in to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. For his career, he was dubbed 'Mr Raider' due in part to the fact that he was the franchise's all-time leader in games played. As of Sunday, he will no longer hold sole possession of that title.

This Sunday when the Raider face the Bears in Chicago, kicker Sebastian Janikowski will appear in his 240th game in Silver & Black. That will tie Tim Brown for the most games played in a Raiders uniform.

Janikowski and Brown are already currently the only two players in Raiders' history to spend 16 seasons with the team. The first four of Janikowski's seasons were the final four for Tim Brown before he spent his final NFL season in Tampa Bay.

Let's be honest, Tim Brown will always be 'Mr Raider' regardless of how long Janikowski or anyone else spends on the team. But now he must move over as Janikowski takes his title as the longest tenured player in Raiders history.

The team's first round pick in the 2000 draft (17 overall) holds several Raiders scoring records including being the team's all-time leading scorer (1574). He has also led the team in scoring in all 15 of his seasons with the team.
