Browns Interested In Reconciling With Legend Jim Brown

On Thursday, Cleveland Browns president Mike Holmgren stated that he was interested in having estranged legend Jim Brown come back into fold and be a part of the Browns' organization. The two sides have been at odds since 2010 when Holmgren reduced Brown's role with the club, which prompted Brown to quit because he felt disrespected.

Now it seems as though Holmgren would like to mend the rift. Via the Cleveland Plain Dealer:

Holmgren said at his press conference Thursday, "I would like Jim Brown to come and be a part of this and feel comfortable doing that and I would welcome him with open arms. How the Browns view Jim Brown hasn't changed and will never change. I would love to see Jim Brown walk in right now or come to the Legends thing, be a part of this.''

Holmgren isn't the only one interested in reconciling. When reached for comment by the Plain Dealer, Brown graciously made it clear that he would like to be apart of the family again.

Brown, reached at home late Thursday night by the Plain Dealer's Branson Wright, said, "If that's what Holmgren said, it just shows a lot of class on his part. I've always been attracted to anyone who has the class to reach out. I have nothing to hold me back from being a positive person in any type of circumstances. I am a Cleveland Brown, but it's always up to those in control to decide what they want to do.''
