An Open Letter to New Browns Owner Jimmy Haslam III:

Care Of: Cleveland Browns Media Relations Department (i.e. probably some summer intern)

Dear Jimmy, and hello summer intern,

Congratulations on your reported $1 billion purchase of our beloved Cleveland Browns.

First week recap: Chris Gocong, WLB, out for season with Achilles tear. Top first-round 2012 draft pick RB Trent Richardson sent to Florida for a knee procedure. Up-and-coming star, and 2010 first-round draft pick CB Joe Haden allegedly popped for Adderall, facing a four-game suspension.

Add to that, 2011 first-round draft pick DT Phil Taylor out for a portion of season with a torn pectoral; and, veteran SLB Scott Fujita still facing three-game suspension.

And you, Mr. Haslam, now find yourself facing the specter of a possibility that none of the Browns' three top draft picks over the past three years play in the season opener.

Welcome to Cleveland. It's about as typical a welcome as anybody could've expected.

I'm being sardonic, of course, but that's all part of it.

But on the other hand, up to two of those top draft picks could still play. And optimism is part of it too.

So with all that in mind, let me enthrall you with three suggestions as you ease a new groove into the owner's seat.
