Mayor Kleem says the city will pay to renovate the facility and in exchange, the Browns will delay their contract's opt-out until 2028. Kleem added that details are still being reviewed and the finalized bill should be complete in about two to three weeks. The final reading will be presented at City Council's meeting on June 1.
The Browns released this statement in response:
"The Cleveland Browns have been fortunate to call the City of Berea our facility home since 1991. We've experienced a wonderful partnership and are excited about working with Mayor Kleem and city officials to ensure that continues. Our neighbors in Berea have been tremendous and it's very important to our organization that we remain here for many years to come."
