The deal with FirstEnergy Corp. could be announced as early as Tuesday, said the person who spoke on condition of anonymity because the team and the company haven't discussed it publicly.
Former Browns owner Randy Lerner declined to sell naming rights to Cleveland Browns Stadium, which opened on the shore of Lake Erie in 1999 when the team was reintroduced as an expansion franchise. Art Modell moved his team to Baltimore after the 1996 season.
The deal could bring millions to new owner Jimmy Haslam, who bought the Browns from Lerner for around $1 billion last October.
