New Browns Owner Jimmy Haslam Introduced In Berea

On Friday, new Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam was introduced to the media during an introductory press conference at the team's practice facility, where he discussed the franchise's future.

Via The Cleveland Plain Dealer:

"I sense there is a strong feeling here that Mike and the team have things headed in the right direction,'' he said. "I think we have to listen, learn and observe.''

Haslam also said, "There's no reason this can't be a winning franchise. Everything is here. If they don't, I'll accept the blame. It's our fault we didnt execute like we should. Every other piece is in place.''

Along those same lines, Haslam stated that he will try to sell the naming rights to the team's stadium and will be attending Wednesday's Family Night in addition to sitting in the stands during the team's first exhibition game.

His main goal is to bring winning back to Cleveland:

"We're 100 percent committed to making the Browns a winner again. I understand the spirit of the city rises and falls with how the Browns do and it's our job to keep it up.''
