The Browns seem to be the next NFL team on the verge of doing a lottery deal. The Plain Dealer reports that the Browns are expected to have a deal done with the Ohio Lottery pretty soon that will have the teams helmet on an upcoming scratch off ticket.
“I think we will have a deal prior to the season,” team spokesman Bill Bonsiewicz said.
The Browns would be the third team to get a deal done with a state lottery, as already the Patriots and Redskins have struck deals with their state lotto after the NFL ruled that teams can do business with them. Being allowed to do business with state lotto’s could give teams up to an additional $1 million per year.
