For the first time, Browns owner Jimmy Haslam answered questions about the ongoing FBI investigation into his company, Pilot Flying J. 

However, it was with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.  The two talked on Tuesday about the investigation.

On Wednesday, a reporter asked the commissioner if he was concerned about the investigation.

"Well, of course. When you have that type of thing, but I've spoken with Jimmy several times and met with him," Goodell said. "Jimmy is doing everything he's asked. He's cooperating. He wants to make sure that he is doing all of the right things in that regard, and he has assured us that he is going to."

The FBI is investigating Haslam and Flying Pilot J because of salespeople allegedly withholding rebates given to trucking companies and bolstering profits for the company.

Haslam released a statement about the meeting:

"It was a good meeting, but we cannot expand beyond the Commissioner's comments."

Haslam is expected to be in Berea on Thursday to oversee the NFL Draft.
