Brown patches up rift with Browns

 

After a two-year split, Jim Brown wants to reunite with the Cleveland Browns. The Hall of Fame running back, who had been estranged from the organization after he was relieved of his duties as a senior adviser, attended an alumni golf outing Friday and said he hopes to have a new role with the team. “I am forever a Cleveland Brown,” he said. Walking without pain and better than he has in years following two hip replacements, the 76-year-old Brown spent nearly 30 minutes speaking with reporters. Brown said he’ll meet today with Jimmy Haslam III, who recently purchased the Browns for $1 billion from Randy Lerner. Brown would like to have a hand in developing “a new winning attitude” with the Browns. – Associated Press
