Columbus officials reportedly think city will host Browns training camp, team says no decision made

Elected officials from Columbus visited FirstEnergy Stadium this past Sunday to make a pitch for the city to become the new home of Browns training camp, the Columbus Dispatch reported Thursday.

Two sources at City Hall told the newspaper the group, which included Mayor Michael B. Coleman, City Council President Andrew J. Ginther and Franklin County Commissioner John O’Grady, left the recent meeting with the Browns believing it was “a matter of when, not if” the team announces training camp will relocate from its headquarters in Berea to Columbus.

The group from Columbus offered financial incentives of an undisclosed amount to entice Browns owner Jimmy Haslam, according to the report.

When asked to comment, the Browns said no decision has been made.

"We haven’t made any decisions about the location of Browns training camp in 2015," team spokesman Rob McBurnett said Thursday. "We are still evaluating various options, including our facility in Berea."

The University of Akron is among the other candidates vying to host training camp. UA's InfoCision Stadium hosted a crowd of 20,673 this past summer for the Browns' Family Day scrimmage.

“Akron will get a good look," Haslam told an Akron Roundtable luncheon crowd last month. "You got off to a good start by what you did in August here.

“All of us felt great about that Saturday morning that we came down here. First of all, the university did a great job, the facilities were good, the crowd turnout was outstanding. It literally felt like going into a Browns game that day.”

The Browns have held training camp at their headquarters in Berea since 1992.

$305,000 settlement in Ohio suit over infant’s rape

WARREN, OHIO: A child raped as an infant by her biological parents during a partially supervised visit would receive payments under a $305,000 settlement between her adoptive parents and a children services agency they sued in Northeast Ohio.

A county judge approved the settlement involving Trumbull County Children Services on Wednesday. The settlement covers legal fees, a $25,000 payment for the girl when she’s 18 and then about $1,300 in limited monthly payments after she turns 21.

The Warren Tribune Chronicle reports a statement from the children services agency still disputed its liability but said the settlement directs more resources toward the girl rather than an extended legal fight.

The girl’s biological parents pleaded guilty to charges including rape and were sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole.
