Jim Brown: 'I am a Cleveland Brown forever'

Updated:

AVON, Ohio (AP) - Hall of Fame running back Jim Brown says he hopes to have a role with the Cleveland Browns after a 2-year estrangement from his former team.

Appearing at an alumni golf outing, the 76-year-old Brown said he'll meet Saturday with incoming owner Jimmy Haslam III. Brown would like to have a hand in developing "a new winning attitude" with the Browns. He previously worked as an adviser to owner Randy Lerner, but was relieved of his duties by president Mike Holmgren.

Brown said Holmgren has reached out to meet with him this weekend. Brown said he's looking forward to sitting down with Holmgren and the two "didn't have much of a confrontation."
