A recent tweet suggests the Cleveland Browns might be for sale.

The Philadelphia Eagles decided to cut their ties with president Joe Banner on Thursday, which initially was of little consequence to the Cleveland Browns. But a tweet by Philadelphia radio personality Howard Eskin suggests that Banner's next position might be part-owner of the Browns.

The tweet was followed by an interview with Cleveland's 92.3 The Fan, when Eskin clarified his comments:

"I don’t know how serious," Eskin said. "Obviously there’s a thought there because if NFL people are getting a feel for this then there is a thought there that the Browns could possibly be sold.

"For the right price anything could be sold."

At this stage, the Browns have yet to comment on the manner.
