BEREA, Ohio -- Hours after Tennessee billionaire Jimmy Haslam III reached an agreement with Randy Lerner to buy the Browns on Thursday, he returned to his Knoxville home for the pivotal Changing of the Watch.

"I've worn a Steelers watch for the last four years," said Haslam, a minority owner of the Steelers since 2008, in an exclusive interview with The Plain Dealer. "I didn't want to be premature and jinx anything, but now I'm putting on my Cleveland Browns watch. I've taken off all of my black and gold and I'm putting on my orange and brown."


L.A. Browns

A 'hands on' owner for the Cleveland Browns?

The arrival of Jimmy Haslam III as Browns owner comes with the promise of sleeves rolled up and eyes laser-focused. Hands are back on. All this recalls the way a coach who is a strict disciplinarian is followed by a "players" coach who is followed by another tightening of the reins.Either way, however, with the Browns owners the results have been depressing for a generation, which is all that counts.

Jimmy will fuck it up. I was part owner of the Steelers I now know how to run a football team.

How soon before the browns become competitive? Does having an owner that was previously with the Steelers change things for the browns?
