I know many in Cleveland are tired of hearing from Jim Brown because his truth isn’t always the easiest to hear whether he’s talking about Trent Richardson or Art Modell. Brown seemingly also didn’t appreciate Mike Holmgren’s version of the truth that he didn’t need Jim Brown in his larger adviser role that Randy Lerner had given him before “The Big Show” arrived. All those rifts aside, it can’t be a bad thing to have the greatest Cleveland Browns player in team history involved with the team.
It will be Brown’s first time at Cleveland Browns Stadium in more than two years. He has been at odds with the club since team president Mike Holmgren removed him from his role as an adviser to owner Randy Lerner, who is selling the franchise to Jimmy Haslam III. Holmgren offered Brown a reduced role with the team, but he declined.
So, we’ll see how it all goes. Nice to know that there will at least be a chance to have Brown around the team with Jimmy Haslam taking ownership soon. Although, I wouldn’t be surprised if it all blew up again either.
