CLEVELAND — The rumor mill is in full swing like it always is at the end of the season, and this Sunday everyone is talking about the CBS report about Browns owner Jimmy Haslam's link to legendary Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer.

The article talks about how Jimmy Haslam has a strong bond with Meyer and how the pair have shared information with each other in the past.

Jimmy Haslam has a very strong bond with Meyer, the sources said, and the two have long been confidants.

The story does not say a lot of things, such as, that Haslam wants Meyer as a coach, or that the Browns are planning on firing current head coach Freddie Kitchens.

Meyer is currently a college football analyst for Fox Sports, and although he has been linked to the Dallas Cowboys and the Washington Redskins jobs, he has said he has no interest in returning to coaching.

The former Buckeyes coach retired after the 2018 season following a tumultuous year in which his lax handling of assistant coach Zach Smith was called into question.
