Jim Brown Says Cleveland Fans Need to Get Over Move and More AFC North News

Andrea HangstContributor IIFebruary 5, 2013

The Baltimore Ravens' Super Bowl win may have opened old wounds for Cleveland Browns fans still stung by Art Modell moving the team to Baltimore, but Browns legend Jim Brown says it's time to get over it.

Speaking to Marc Sessler of, Brown said, "Art did not make the correct move in my opinion, at the time. It hurt the people, but now it's time to get over it."

That may be hard to hear—even from the most beloved Browns player of all time—but it makes sense.

The Browns have been back in Cleveland and the NFL since 1999 and had ample time to put themselves into contention. Blaming Modell's stealing the team away to Baltimore for where the team stands today doesn't help the Browns move forward.
