Report: Browns owner admits team tried to trade for Harbaugh

Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam confirmed that the team tried to trade for San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh, according to USA Today.

“There was an opportunity there, and it didn’t materialize,” Haslam told USA Today.

ProFootballTalk.com released a shocking report earlier this week that said the Browns and 49ers nearly agreed on a trade to send Harbaugh to the Browns before Harbaugh turned the deal down. In the aftermath of the report, both 49ers CEO Jed York and Harbaugh claimed the reports were inaccurate and ridiculous.
