Canton’s Hall of Fame enshrinement weekend celebrates pro football’s greatest players of the past. But the future is on the minds of many Northeast Ohio pro football fans.

And outside of the Hall of Fame, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell answered a few questions about what will happen with the planned sale of the Browns.

The sale to Jimmy Haslam III was announced last week. But NFL owners are not scheduled to vote on it until October. 

To speed that up, Goodell says a special meeting might be possible before the regular season starts in September.

“It depends how we go. We’ve got a good process to go through, we’ll go through that process, and when we get it done, if we’re not too close to that October meeting, we may do it in advance.”

Haslam, current team owner Randy Lerner and a long-term lease at Browns stadium also all say the team will not leave Cleveland. 

Twenty-four of the 32 NFL owners need to approve the sale, and the next regular owners’ meeting is in Chicago on Oct. 16.
