As reported earlier, the NFL opened an investigation into the Cleveland Browns following allegations by former head coach Hue Jackson.

Jackson made comments following the lawsuit filed by Brian Flores against the Miami Dolphins and New York Giants. He later tried to clarify those comments in an interview on SportsCenter but the NFL decided to investigate.

Browns owner Jimmy Haslam did not mince words when responding to Jackson’s claims this offseason.

Jackson’s tenure with the team was a horrific stretch of football. While Paul DePodesta and Sashi Brown seemed in unison on the plan, Jackson pushed back on rebuilding with draft picks.

The league completed a 60-day investigation into Jackson’s claims and could not substantiate them:

In a press release, the NFL notes that Jackson did not meet with investigators as he originally agreed to do but the investigation was able to review thousands of documents and his public statements along with filing from a previous arbitration.

None of Jackson’s allegations could be substantiated despite that lengthy review.
