Browns Could Be Sold By September, For Reported $920 Million Price Tag

The sale of the Cleveland Browns continues to move quickly and could be approved by the start of the regular season, according to a report from Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Part of the reason the process is moving so quickly is potential new owner Jimmy Haslam III has already gone through the NFL's vetting system approving him as a possible owner. Haslam went through the process in 2009 when he purchased a minority stake in the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Haslam, who will reportedly purchase the team for $920 million, could be the new majority owner in time for the Browns' opening game against the Eagles. Before that happens, a committee of NFL owners would have to meet to approve the sale. According to Cabot's report, that meeting could occur sometime in August or early September.
