Kraft offers hand to Browns owner

Patriots owner Robert Kraft invited new Browns owner Jimmy Haslam to town to share insight on life as an NFL owner, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

The first owner to call Jimmy Haslam regarding his purchase of the Browns is a man who has made the Super Bowl a second home for his franchise since 2002.

New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft not only offered congratulations but tendered a tantalizing invitation: Come learn the business of the NFL from us.

Haslam is headed to suburban Boston next week to meet with Kraft, whose team has won three Super Bowls and played in two others. The truck-stop magnate didn't think twice about whether to accept.

"I'd be crazy not to," Haslam said. "He said, 'I want you to come up here, and I'll show you everything.' I'd have to be the dumbest guy ever not to take him up on that."
