The Future of the Browns Franchise Friday the Cleveland Browns confirmed that Tennessee businessman mogul Jimmy Haslam is in talks to buy a controlling interest in the franchise from current owner Randy Lerner. Reports indicate that the two sides are close to a deal but questions remain about whether the team will stay in Cleveland and if the Browns leadership will remain intact. Monday on the Sound of Ideas host Mike McIntyre talks with Cleveland Browns beat reporter Mary Kay Cabot.
