As far as the NFL is concerned, Browns owner Jimmy Haslam can remain actively involved in running his team while the FBI and IRS investigate his other business.
The federal government is investigating whether the truck stop company Haslam and his family own has engaged in fraud to keep millions of dollars worth of gas rebates that should have been distributed to its customers. Haslam plans to appear at company headquarters today to make a statement about the accusations. Media members have already been told that Haslam will not take any questions.
But as far as the NFL is concerned, these are just allegations, and Haslam is, for now anyway, free to continue running the Browns.
