Update: Cleveland Browns Say They Are Not For Sale

Amid rumors created by Philadelphia radio personality Howard Eskin, there was some speculation that the Cleveland Browns were soon going to be for sale. However, the team has issued a statement debunking what was out there.

Eskin tweeted today that former Eagles president Joe Banner might be interested in becoming part of a group that would own the Browns. Eskin's tweet today was the first many had heard of the Browns possibly being for sale. Gulkis added to Mark Kay Cabot that he thought the report sounded "very speculative."

The current owner of the Browns is Randy Lerner. The franchise has been in his family since it was an expansion team.
