The Cleveland Browns are discussing long-term plans for a major downtown development project that could include major stadium renovations 鈥?or a new facility.
Owner Dee Haslam revealed to ESPN that the team has done some preliminary work by speaking to city officials and there has been positive feedback. She said any project could take 10 years to complete Matt Garza Jersey , and cautioned nothing has been decided.
"So I think it's really important to find out what's possible," she told ESPN. "There could be a lot of great ideas that we might not be able to do because it's not feasible for one reason or another. I don't want to get the horse in front of the cart until we're knowledgeable enough to know, because we're not informed enough to know right now. But we do know that we have a desire to make a bigger impact on the future of Cleveland."
As part of the process, the team is conducting an economic impact study with Cleveland State University. Haslam cited the development of the Gateway project, which includes Progressive Field and Quicken Loans Arena, as an example of how some of the city's under-used areas could be better developed.
FirstEnergy Stadium Youth Los Angeles Rams Jerseys , which was built before the Browns returned as an expansion team in 1999, shares space along Lake Erie with the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Great Lakes Science Center. But much of the area near those facilities is either underdeveloped or not used.
Haslam said the Browns will complete their lease, which runs through 2029. The team recently finished a 5 million renovation, paying million of the cost.
Haslam insisted any discussion about a new stadium would be premature, and that any decision on the long-term future should be made by taxpayers.
"I have no idea at this point what's even feasible," Haslam said. "Don't you think it's a good idea for us to learn and figure that out? I really do think that would be a decision by the people of Cleveland and the planners Carlton Davis Buccaneers Jersey ," she said. "I think what we need to do is be part of the conversation."
Haslam recently stepped down as the CEO of RIVR Media to concentrate on the Browns fulltime.The rich got richer on Friday afternoon, as the Minnesota Vikings first-ranked defense of 2017 is adding defensive tackle and 2014 Pro Bowler Sheldon Richardson:Former Seahawks鈥?and Jets鈥?DT Sheldon Richardson reached agreement on a one-year deal with the Minnesota Vikings, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 16, 2018Richardson, 27, spent his first four seasons with the New York Jets - the team that drafted with the 13th-overall pick in 2013. Traded to the Seattle Seahawks at the start of 2017 Authentic Cordy Glenn Jersey , Richardson had 44 tackles, one sack and one pass defended.The Vikings defense finished first in yards (275.9 per game), and scoring (just 15.8 yards allowed per contest). Adding Richardson to a defensive line that includes Everson Griffen (13 sacks last season) and Danielle Hunter (seven sacks), is a scary thought for the rest of the NFC.Signing Richardson comes just a few days after the Vikings landed star quarterback Kirk Cousins on a three-year contract worth million. In turn, Minnesota let Case Keenum, Sam Bradford and Teddy Bridgewater all walk in free agency.With Cousins and Richardson now joining the NFC runner ups Authentic DaeSean Hamilton Jersey , the Vikings have to be considered a heavy Super Bowl favorite. With wide receiver stars Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen (plus running back Dalvin Cook), Minnesota's offense has the chance to take off in 2018.Richardson surprisingly couldn't find a big contract after hitting the open market for the first time. He's one of the league's elite run stoppers and can generate plenty of pressure up the middle. A strong year with the Vikings could put him in line for a major contract if Richardson hits the open market again next year.It's early, but the Vikings are looking like a major winner in the early days of 2018 NFL free agency. If Cousins and Richardson can perform at their usual levels, this franchise could finally win its first Super Bowl..
