Former Browns WR Reggie Rucker talks about new owner Jimmy Haslam

CLEVELAND - New Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam said all the right things when he was introduced to the media and the franchise's loyal fan base on last Friday afternoon.

The owner of the Pilot convenience store chain and the Flying J travel centers wants to bring winning football back to the shores of Lake Erie.

Before becoming the owner of the Browns, Haslam was a partial owner of the Browns division rival, the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Will this new owner get the Browns back to winning football? Does being involved with the Pittsburgh Steelers give Haslam a leg up in getting the Browns back to winning football?
