Haslam expects progress, but not domination

PHOENIX -- Jimmy Haslam gave no brash predictions for the 2013 Cleveland Browns when he met the local media at the NFL Meetings this week. His discussion about his team contained his usual candor and enthusiasm, but it was mixed with a heavy dose of realism. Weve won 23 games in the last five years, 14 games in the last three, Haslam said. So were not going to go 13-3 next year....
