Browns want Cleveland to pay for half of stadium renovations totaling $1 billion

Another event in the stadium saga has taken place as the Cleveland Browns have suggested a renovation plan costing between $1 billion and $1.2 billion. The real kicker, of course, is that the Browns want the city of Cleveland to foot about half of the bill.

This comes after the team bought land in Brook Park, leading fans to believe that the Browns could be moving to that location after the current stadium lease ends. This seems like it could be the team positioning themselves to say they are moving the stadium to Brook Park if the city doesn’t help with renovation costs to keep them on the lake.

This storyline will continue for a while — the stadium lease isn’t due to end until after the 2028 season.
