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. I think what Ive stated back to Aug. 3 is were going to do this the right way.

It isn’t often that teams draft a quarterback in the first round of the NFL Draft two years in a row. But most teams aren’t the Cleveland Browns, who have only been to the playoffs once since returning to the league in 1999, and recorded only two winning seasons. Nobody was incredibly excited about the selection of Brandon Weeden a year ago, and it doesn’t appear as if the...
