The Cleveland Browns mercifully won't be bringing their annual fall training camp to Columbus, Ohio after all.
As first reported by Rick Rouan of The Columbus Dispatch, a plan between Franklin County and the NFL franchise won't be pursed.
The city of Columbus, Franklin County and the Browns had been working on a plan to replace the Tuttle Park recreation center with a larger facility and three football fields where the Browns would practice for a month during the summer. The county and Browns would have contributed $5 million each, and the city would have covered the rest of the $15 to $17 million it would cost to build the new facility.
I know; I know, it's hard to believe Franklin County and Columbus didn't want to shell out $22 million to house a Browns practice facility utilized for a few weeks a year.
I take full credit for common sense prevailing.
