Browns Owner Sets Sights Overseas

It's a different kind of football for the Browns.

This, after owner Randy Lerner buys Aston Villa FC, a premier soccer team in England.

"The basis for acquiring Aston Villa is that it is a storied Club dating from the 1870's with periods of treasured memories and glory," said Lerner. "Currently it faces the need for reinvestment in a variety of areas which many of its competitors have underway or have completed in recent years. The opportunity to be a part of strengthening Villa's business operations and facilities represents a broad set of challenges that I'm eager to take on."
