Browns Owner Jimmy Haslam Releases Statement on Michael Sam

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam released a statement about the possibility of his team welcoming an openly gay player like Michael Sam into their organization:

"Absolutely we would welcome Michael Sam to the Cleveland Browns organization if he can help us win games and is the right football player for this team. We are intent on creating an environment that is supportive, accepting and respectful of individual rights and differences."

Earlier today, our own Josh Finney wrote an article detailing the situation -- although I'm sure you've heard every site, radio show or talk show host discuss it by now.
