Browns general manager Ray Farmer may still be in trouble with the NFL. Owner Jimmy Haslam said Wednesday that he’s given his ”full support” to Farmer, who is at the center of a league investigation for sending text messages to the sideline during games. Meeting for 50 minutes with select media members, Haslam said he has no plans to fire Famer, adding that the GM has told the team he made a mistake in sending the texts, a violation of league rules.
