Jim Brown Plans To Meet With Jimmy Haslam, Would Like Role In Browns Organization

Hall of Fame running back Jim Brown returned to the Cleveland area on Friday to attend Earnie Green's induction into the Cleveland Browns Legends and will meet with new team owner, Jimmy Haslam, for the first time on Saturday (Haslam purchased the team on Aug. 2).

Brown has been estranged from the organization since being relieved of his duties as a team advisor two years ago. Originally selected by Cleveland with the No. 6 overall selection in the 1956 NFL Draft, Brown spent his entire career with the organization and set records in basically every notable offensive category.

He is excited at the prospects of meeting with Haslam. Via Cleveland.com:

"What an opportunity to be able to sit down with him and ... for him to express himself and I can express myself and that's all one can ask at this time. It's a beautiful thing.

"I am forever a Cleveland Brown."

Brown also expressed that he would be interested in returning to the organization in some capacity.
