Alright fellas, this is a Brady Quinn at the urinal story but...

I have a close friend from Quicken who knows Dan Gilbert and some of the Browns higher-ups, it's behind-the-scene but they claim that the NFL is actively looking for a new owner for the Browns.

It doesn't look good for Haslam and Pilot Flying J at all. Which sucks b/c he seemingly was an owner with a ton of potential. I don't know the timeline obviously, but yet again, the Browns are going to change ownership.

Only in Cleveland... only in Cleveland...

No big deal imo, we were due for a new owner/regime change anyway.

I have no doubt the NFL having been thinking about this since day one of this saga. They are not stupid they will have something ready to go if this or turns to crap for Ole Jimmy.

Yep, I view it more as a "just in case" kinda thing. WOuld be stupid not to have something lined up

I think it's just a safety net for them. They don't want a team being stuck in limbo for a year or so like the Hornets in the NBA. If something happens to Jimmy and he has to forfeit his right of owning a team they would want someone stepping in right away.

I really don't care who owns the team I just don't want them blowing up the FO, I actually like this front office we have
