Cleveland Browns Not Bringing Training Camp to Columbus

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.
