The only surprising part is the count.
Jimmy Haslam was approved unanimously to be the new owner of the Browns this morning at the league’s owners meeting, according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
Many times in the past, the Raiders would abstain from such votes, a case of Al Davis being Al Davis.
But now that this one’s official, it’ll be interesting to see how quickly the Tennessee truck stop magnate starts remaking the Browns.
As Cabot pointed out, Browns president Mike Holmgren was not on hand for the meetings, despite being schedule to attend.
Of course, Joe Banner, who will be coming with Haslam, wasn’t there either.
Haslam has said he wouldn’t work on personnel changes until after the season, and coming on the heels of a streak-breaking win last week, it would be curious to see him make a move now.
