BEREA, Ohio (AP) - Browns owner Jimmy Haslam says he's ``very optimistic'' about the outcome of a federal investigation involving his family's truck-stop chain.
Speaking to reporters as the Browns opened training camp, Haslam said he has been in ``constant contact'' with the NFL since the fraud probe began in April at his Flying Pilot J business. Haslam said the league has been supportive during the investigation.
Haslam recently reached a settlement to reimburse customers who were cheated out of fuel rebates. Haslam said the investigation has not been a distraction in rebuilding the Browns and he denied there were any problems with his cash flow, citing a recent renovation of the team's headquarters and plans to renovate FirstEnergy Stadium.
Haslam said he's excited about the upcoming season, but cautioned Cleveland fans to be patient.
