Browns to Columbus in 2018?

The Browns confirmed that they are once again exploring moving part of training camp to Columbus in 2018

BEREA, Ohio-- The Browns might be on the move again.

Just for training camp--that is.

A report from the Columbus Dispatch said that the Browns were exploring options of moving part of training camp to Columbus for the 2018 season.

Browns team spokesman Peter John-Baptiste confirmed the story.

 "As we have consistently conveyed, based on our football operation’s desires for training camp, we are considering various locations. Representatives have approached us about looking into different options, and currently, we are exploring an opportunity in Columbus, which would include a financial contribution from the team towards a community-based recreational facility. 

"Throughout these discussions, we are focused on three core areas: 1. Creating the ideal environment for our players and coaches to prepare for the NFL season, 2. Ensuring that we can invest in and help create positive opportunities for youth in that community during the 11 months a year when the Browns are not practicing at the proposed location and 3. Creating special experiences for all Browns fans to interact with our team, including by continuing to host open sessions at our facility in Berea for fans in Northeast Ohio, above and beyond available training camp days. We will continue to diligently evaluate all options and will place great weight on each of these priorities while remaining committed to our year-round facility in Berea.”

The Browns have had training camp at their facility in Berea since 1992.
