CLEVELAND -- Confirmation that Browns owner Randy Lerner is in discussions with a possible new owner have rekindled fears that the team could move again.
The city says there is a solid lease that would keep the team here through 2029.
And Browns General Counsel Fred Nance tells Channel 3's Tom Beres that Randy Lerner authorized him to deny there is any chance of a move.

Nance said Lerner is insisting on a prerequisite to negotiations with any possible new owner that there be no talk of moving the team as part of a possible sale.
Nance said Lerner's statement was simple and direct and unqualified -- "There is no possibility of relocating the Cleveland Browns."
