The on-field product arguably will be taking a hit in the short term, but the building in which the Browns play eventually will be seeing some improvements.
The Browns and the City of Cleveland issued a joint statement on Thursday regarding upgrades at the stadium where the team plays.
“We have established a positive relationship, we are working together, and we have had open dialogue regarding the necessary stadium repairs,” the statement reads. “In its 15th season, the stadium is in obvious need of significant maintenance, similar to any sports venue of comparative age. We are working through our next steps and expect to have a more detailed approach soon.”
Sooner rather than later, the topic of a new stadium inevitably will be raised, since it seems like most NFL stadiums last anywhere from 25 to 30 years.
Especially when taxpayers are footing a large chunk of the bill.
